Figure 4.

Graphical summary of nucleotide content across 68 holometabolan mt genomes. Measured in bp percentage (Y-axis) and level of nucleotide skew (X-axis) (described in methods, following [41]). Green: Diptera; Orange: Lepidoptera; Red: Hymenoptera; Blue: Coleoptera; Turquoise: Neuropterida; Burgundy: Strepsiptera. 1 and 2 refer to M. australiensis and X. vesparum respectively. A) A+T% vs A-skew B) G+C% vs C-skew. 3 genomes from Thysanura (in black), the host group for M. australiensis are also shown (see methods).
