From: Genome-wide transcription start site mapping of Bradyrhizobium japonicum grown free-living or in symbiosis – a rich resource to identify new transcripts, proteins and to study gene regulation

TSSs in free-living cells and in bacteroids. a Venn diagram showing the numbers of TSSs detected in Free and in Nod. b Diagram showing the percentage of TSSs mapped to the symbiotic island or to the entire genome and belonging to one of the following three categories: detected only in Nod, detected in both conditions and detected only in Free. Light bars, symbiotic island; dark bars, entire genome. c Boxplots showing the distribution of peak heights (logarithmic scale) in Nod and Free for TSSs mapped to the entire genome or to the symbiotic island, as indicated. Peaks corresponding to TSSs active in both conditions (see b) were assessed separately in the Nod and in Free libraries. Horizontal lines are the median values
