Fig. 2

Dotplot representation of the alignment of the genomes of Hydrogenovibrio crunogenus XCL-2 and Hydrogenovibrio sp. SP-41. The regions of the genome predicted to be genomic islands are highlighted in green (for XCL-2) and red (for SP-41). Counting from the lowest coordinate, islands 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8 of XCL-2 and islands 1, 2, 3, 5 of SP-41 contain mostly exclusive sequences, thus were likely acquired after the divergence of the two strains. An island is in common (Island 6 of XCL-2 / 4 of SP-825 41). Island 2 of XCL-2 is partially common to SP-41, but not predicted as an island in that strain. Island 9 of XCL-2 partially overlaps islands 6 and 7 of SP-41, in a region of lower similarity, compared to the rest of the alignment (a translocation is also located there)
