Canonical Insertion-Deletion Markers for Rapid DNA Typing of Francisella tularensis
Figure 2. Properties of 280 insertion-deletion (indel) loci identified by analysis of 5 Francisella tularensis genome sequences. The diagrams show distributions of indel sizes (A), repeat sizes detected at these loci (B), and10 allelic diversity patterns (C); the number 1 or 2 represents each of the 2 allelic variants. A string of numbers includes, in order, strain U112 (subsp. novicida), FSC147 (subsp. mediasiatica), SCHU S4 (subsp. tularensis), OSU18 (subsp. holarctica), and LVS (subsp. holarctica). Empty and filled bars correspond to the presence or absence of repeats >3 bp long, respectively.
