The complete genome of
. A. Overview of genomic features. Indicated are (from outside to inside); Short Tandem Repeats <500 bp (dots); rRNA (red), tRNA (blue), mobile genetic elements (green) and the PaLoc (purple); GC content per 1 kb window; GC skew (orange line) in a 5 kb sliding window; grey links represent repeats (193 repeats identified with Blast2Seq) having >95% identity and an alignment length of >500 bp; red links indicate an alignment length >2 kb. B. Confirmation of the 18 bp duplication in spo0A resulting in a 6 amino acid direct repeat  C. Confirmation of the 2.4 kb Δerm deletion . Open reading frames are indicated as yellow arrows, repeat elements in blue.
