Synteny between the chromosomes of C. variabile DSM 44702 and C. jeikeium K411. The X-Y plot is composed of dots forming syntenic regions between both chromosomes. Each dot represents a predicted C. variabile protein having an ortholog in the C. jeikeium chromosome, with co-ordinates corresponding to the position of the respective coding region in each genome. Orthologous proteins were identified by reciprocal best BLASTP matches with the EDGAR software. The genomic region of C. variabile DSM 44702 indicating a translocation event is marked by an arrow. Selected genomic regions characterized by breakpoints of synteny between C. variabile and C. jeikeium are labeled according to their predicted gene content.
