Aligned optical maps for Group-III (BO34, 416) and A23 strains and in silico reference EGDe map. In the pair-wise alignments, lines connecting two chromosomal maps indicate a discontinuity in the alignment of fragments. Chromosomal inversions are indicated by crossed alignment lines between paired maps and are highlighted in pink. Unaligned restriction fragments, representing differences between two aligned chromosomes, are shown in white; blue indicates aligned restriction fragments. Fragments 3 and 4 represent inserted fragments in the A23 chromosome. Fragments 5, 6 and 7 represent inserted fragments in the chromosomes of the BO43 and 416 strains. A supplementary fragment 8 is inserted in the chromosome of the BO43 strain.
