Insertions between syntenic core genes. Bar chart of CDS inserted between syntenic core-CDS existing in all strains depicted relative to reference strain 1/2a EGD-e. The oriC inversion of strains 08–5923 and 08–5578 was removed for this analysis. Mobile genetic elements (MGE) are classified as prophage (red triangle), transposon/IS element (blue square), genetic island (green circle). The MGEs were numbered according to their relative position in strain 1/2a EGD-e. Putative anchor genes in the chromosome (ex.: tRNA, comK) are included in square brackets. If different elements inserted at the same chromosomal locus, the strains involved are denoted in round brackets. Multiple designations per element are delimited by a colon. If an element was not described yet, the genus bearing the highest overall nucleotide similarity to the respective region was included instead (e.g. Bacillus subtilis, Enterococcus faecalis). Lineages are denoted with roman numbers.
