Representation of Paenibacillus polymyxa strain plasmids. Plasmids from strains M1 (left) and SC2 (right) were annotated in Artemis and visualized using DNAPlotter. Labelled from outside to centre. Outermost ring shows the scale in Mbps, 1st ring; plus-strand CDS (cyan), 2nd ring; minus-strand CDS (cyan), 3rd ring; plus-strand strain specific CDS (purple), 4th ring; minus-strand strain specific CDS (purple), 5th ring; tRNA genes (green), 6th ring; GC-plot where black and grey correspond to above and below average GC content respectively, 7th ring; GC-skew where black and grey correspond to above and below average skew respectively. Strain specific genes were identified using mGenomeSubtractor with an H-value cut off of 0.42. Annotation was obtained from the NCBI GeneBank database. Phage genes, tandem repeats and transposons were identified using PHAST and IS Finder, respectively. rRNA and tRNA genes were obtained from available annotations.
