A plot of G+C content along the eleven finished contigs. G+C content calculated in 500-bp sliding windows in 50-bp steps along the finished contigs. The marks on the x axis indicate 1 kbp. Black lines, dark grey and light grey lines indicate annotated genes with sequence similarities in the public databases, hypothetical genes with matches in the EST data, and hypothetical genes without matches in the public databases or EST data, respectively. The position of the line on the y axis indicates the GC3s value of the gene, an arrow indicates its direction (strand), and the annotated gene function is indicated. Average genomic G+C contents in the GSS clones are indicated by a dotted line. The order of the contigs is arbitrary.
