Example of a GI clustering conflict in Clostridium botulinum Ba4 657. Example of a GI clustering conflict. In Clostridium botulinum Ba4 657, six GIs larger than 10 kb are identified by IslandViewer. The CI-25 threshold sequence has a genomic dissimilarity to its genome of 30,86. GI-1 and GI-5 are compositionally more similar to each other (δ* of 22,7), as are GI-2 and GI-5 (δ* of 27,7). However, GI-1 and GI-2 are much more dissimilar (δ* of 42,1), and therefore could be considered as a clustering conflict.
