Significant correlation between number of alleles and minisatellites structural characteristics The number of alleles is plotted as a function of Total length and %GC for Bacillus anthracis, and %matches for Yersinia pestis (the correlations are highly significant at the 0.01 level). Number of alleles for each locus is the total number detected (i.e. Bacillus anthracis and B. cereus; Yersinia pestis and Y. pseudotuberculosis).
