0: Actual data; 1: conserved operons, order and spacing; 2: conserved operon order; 3: conserved operons; 4: gene scrambling (see text and Figure 6 for details). Autocorrelation values are reported here at operon size scale (1 to 15 inter-gene distances).

*: significant P-value for 95% confidence limits
