Genome BLAST atlas. The chromosome II of vibrios. The Atlas was constructed using the genome of V. cholerae N16961 as the reference strain on which the genes of the other strains are mapped. Genomic regions unique to this strain and not appearing in other vibrio strains are lightly colored. Notice the hyper-variable region (midpoint at 375 K) in the chromosome II of vibrios (the super-integron), corresponding to 1/6 of this replicon. The position of the genes in the different replicons may not be the same.
