[…] rching for orthologous genes, according to a previously described methodology (). The genome alignment was performed and visualized using the Mauve software tool v2.4 (). GI were identified using the Genomic Island Suite of Tools GIST v1.0 () and determination of GC% in these genomic regions. Identification of mobile genetic elements (MGE) was performed using PHAST web server for the phage sequenc […]

[…] calculated with JSpecies (). Whole-genome alignments were performed against UT26, LL01, LL02 and LL03 using MUMmer () and regions of horizontal transfer in each target genome were predicted with the Genomic Island Suite of Tools (GIST), which combines the results of several common horizontal transfer prediction tools to produce a single, improved estimate (). This information was visualized using […]
