Table 1 Insertion sequence (IS) elements in five halophiles. For the reference genome of Halobacterium sp. NRC-1, the copy numbers of the IS are listed, while for the partial genome sequences of other halophiles, the sequence numbers that matched the IS elements are shown. More IS elements were identified from H. lacusprofundi and H. marismortui than from H. gomorrense and N. asiatica.
