Comparison of the chromosome and circular plasmid of Arthrobacter sp. Rue61a with other Arthrobacter species. A: Comparison of chromosomes. Genes encoded by the leading and the lagging strand (circle 1 and 2) of the chromosome of strain Rue61a are marked in orange and blue, respectively. rRNA-clusters and tRNAs (3rd circle) are shown in pink and black, respectively. Genes of phylogenetic distribution to other phyla than actinobacteria (circle 4) and putative genomic islands (circle 5) are shown in dark green and lime green, respectively. Genome comparison using the BiBaG tool based on bidirectional blasts were done against the genomes of A. aurescens TC1, Arthrobacter sp. FB24, A. globiformis NBRC 12137, A. chlorophenolicus A6, A. phenanthrenivorans Sphe3, and A. arilaitensis Re117 (circles 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11, respectively). The inner plot gives the G+C content. B: Circular plot of pARUE232. Genes encoded by the leading and the lagging strand (circle 1 and 2) of the circular plasmid pARUE232 of Arthrobacter sp. Rue61a are marked in orange and blue, respectively. Comparison with the plasmids of A. aurescens TC1 (circle 3) and Arthrobacter sp. FB24 (circle 4), the draft genome of A. globiformis NBRC 12137 (circle 5), and the plasmids of A. chlorophenolicus A6 (circle 6), A. phenanthrenivorans Sphe3 (circle 7) and A. arilaitensis Re117 (circle 8) is based on bidirectional blasts using the BiBaG tool. The inner plot gives the G+C content.
