xenoGI: reconstructing the history of genomic island insertions in clades of closely related bacteria

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5799925
PMID: 29402213
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-018-2038-0

[…] We look at two examples of genomic islands from the enteric bacteria with the goal of demonstrating the sort of analysis one can do with xenoGI. We do this on a tree of eleven enteric species (Fig. ). Fig. 3The first example is Salmonella pathogenicity island 2 (SPI-2), from Salmonella enterica [, ]. This island is essential for virule […]
