Figure 8

Identification of xenologs in PCC 7942 by combining different sources of information. Cases of horizontally transferred genes into the genome of PCC 7942 were identified by having at least two of the following properties: G+C content deviating more than 1 SD from the mean value of all genes; low number of HIP1 motifs relative to gene length well as an unusual codon usage (PA genes); and an unusual phylogenetic relationship. ORFan genes were also considered.
