Boxplot of DKL. The box and whisker plot shows DKL differences between chromosomes, GIs, phages and plasmids. The boxes contain 50% of the values surrounding the median (thick horizontal line), while the lower and upper whiskers represent approximately the 25% lowest and highest DKL values, respectively. The open circles above the upper whiskers are considered as outlying values. Although differences were small between the types of DNA sequence families, chromosomes were found to be, on average, the most biased (highest information potential) while plasmids the least.
