Table 2 Indel positions in the chromosomes of B. garinii PBi and B. afzelii PKo in respect to the B. burgdorferi B31 genome. Only indels larger than 40 bases are listed. Positions reflect start sites on the B. burgdorferi genome. Asterisks denote indels where adjacent parts were combined for clarity. Highly variable regions are bold. Please note that no ancestral state can be inferred from the table.

From: Comparative genome analysis: selection pressure on the Borrelia vls cassettes is essential for infectivity
