Figure 1

Intrageneric comparison of the genome signature within 40 prokaryotic genera. Species with high genomic dissimilarity scores are in red circles (11: Chlorobium, 20: Helicobacter, 25; Mycoplasma and 36: Treponema) species with low genomic dissimilarity scores are in blue circles (5: Bartonella, 12: Bordetella, 31: Salmonella and 34: Yersinia). The average genomic dissimilarity between different species of the same genus is 0.046 (red line). The blue line represents the average intraspecific genomic dissimilarity from figure 2 (δ* = 0.009).
