Chromosomal map of USA300-HOU-MR with landmarks indicating the SCCmec-ACME region (outer circle, green), pathogenicity islands (outer circle, light blue), prophage (outer circle, lavender), the 13 kb insertion sequence (outer circle, orange), and two regions of sequence not found in USA300-HOU-MS (outer circle, yellow). ORFs on both strands are represented by the second circle and are colored according to functional categories as follows and as shown in the key: cell processes, tan; cell structure, violet; DNA replication and recombination, red; general metabolism, blue; regulation, green; transcription, yellow; translation, orange; transport, cyan; virulence, fuchsia; unknown, black. The third circle shows RNAs: rRNAs, blue; tRNAs, red; ncRNAs, green. The inner circle shows the location of SNPs between USA300-HOU-MR and FPR3757.
