Dotplot of the two genome sequences with indel regions and chromosomal rearrangements. Pairwise comparison of the two nucleotide sequences was performed using a dotplot matrix. The results show regions of shared sequence along the chromosomes (black line) and where there are insertion-deletion (indel) events that result in no sequence similarity shared between the genomes (white gap). The two largest gaps (~100 kbp each) correspond to the positions of the putative CTns, Tn6164 in M120 and Tn6123 in CD105HS27. The conserved but differently positioned Tn6190 is shown also. The contigs for each genome are illustrated along the sides for each genome to show the chromosomal rearrangements occur within the assembled contig boundaries
