Whole genome comparison of S. espanaensis. To analyze gene synteny, the amino acid sequences of all predicted CDS in the genome of S. espanaensis were compared against those of (A) A. mirum (red) and S. erythraea (green) as well as A. mediterranei (purple) and S. viridis (orange) using the bidirectional BLAST comparison implemented in EDGAR. Aligning all genomes at dnaA, the position of each potential ortholog was then plotted against the position in the S. espanaensis genome. In order to accommodate different genome sizes, the relative position is used for the target genomes.
