Profiles of DKL differences within M. tuberculosis, E. coli and B. cereus. Profiles made from the DKL values of non-overlapping sliding windows in M. tuberculosis, E. coli and B. cereus. It can be seen that DKL values within the chromosomes are remarkably stable. B. cereus has noticeably lower DKL values than the other genomes indicating that the chromosome has a comparably more random base composition. The DKL values of a 50% GC content random genome are also included for comparison. For all chromosomes, the black horizontal line represents mean DKL.
