Comparison of module completion patterns in 8 phenotypically different Bacillus-related species.A: Pathway modules showing remarkable differences appeared among the 8 species. B: Structural complex modules showing remarkable differences appeared among the 8 species. Upper histogram indicates common or specific modules in the species possessing each phenotype (from left to right; mesophilic neutrophile; mesophilic alkaliphile; mesophilic, extremely halotolerant alkaliphile; and thermophilic neutrophile). Green letters show rare modules completed by less than 10% of 768 prokaryotic species described in Figure 3. Alphabet in parentheses shows the patterns of completion profile based on the module completion ratio as shown in Table 1 and Figure 3. A: Universal module, B: Restricted module, C: Diversified module, D: Non-prokryotic module. bsu, B. subtilis; bao, B. amyloliquefaciens; bli, B. licheniformis; bha, B. halodurans; bpf, B. pseudofirmus; oih, O. iheyensis; gka, G. kaustophilus; and gth, G. thermoglucosidasius .
