PMCID: 4535895
PMID: 26484173
DOI: 10.1016/j.gdata.2015.01.006

[…] p. chlororaphis may share a more recent common ancestor with p. fluorescens than with p. syringae., conserved and specific regions in the genome can be identified through global alignments. blastatlas gives an overview of the whole genome homology, and the reference genome can be compared at the gene and/or protein level against many genomes . in this study, the reference genome of ht66 […]
