Schematic representation of the genes diversely conserved in R. africae in comparison with highly pathogenic rickettsiae. The state of a gene is represented by a small box colored in green (full-length), blue (pseudogene), red (fragment), orange (remnant) or black (absent).Gene numbers are indicated in the left column. The Figure shows the gene distribution in R. africae by comparison with highly pathogenic rickettsiae.
