Statistics for 500 bacterial genomes as a function of genome size is presented. Gene number for 50 soil bacterial genomes sized between 4-8 Mbp marked in blue and the rest of the genomes marked in green. Paenibacillus sp. JDR-2 is marked in blue circle; Geobacillus sp. Y412MC10 is marked in green circle; P. vortex is marked in red circle and its value as dotted line. STDEV for A-C graphs is presented on the right side of the axis and the mean value is presented in the dashed line. (A) Two-component system (TCS) genes plot is presented. P. vortex possesses 210 TCS genes. (B) Transport related genes are presented. P. vortex possesses 700 such genes. (C) Plot of transcription factor genes. P. vortex possesses 411 such genes. (D) Plot of genes related to defense mechanisms. P. vortex possesses 138 such genes. (E) Non-normalized combined score as function of genome size. The combined score is calculated as an average of the stdev of TCS, TF, transport and defense genes for the dataset of 500 bacterial genomes. (F) Combined score normalized to genome size.
