Figure 10

Conserved genes in PCC 7942. a) Number of best reciprocal BLAST hits between PCC 7942 and each of the following genomes: P. marinus SS 120, the chromatophore from P. chromatophora and the set of cyanobacterial conserved genes from CyOGs database; b) the set of conserved genes in PCC 7942 is defined as the union of the tree above datasets, plus those conserved in 34 out of 35 genomes (this last comparison added 66 genes to the dataset). Overall, the set of conserved genes comprises 54% of the genome of PCC 7942; c) the set of conserved genes (or paleome) is enriched in genes with functional annotation.
