BLAST (http://blast.ncbi.nlm.gov/Blast.cgi) atlas of predicted protein homologies mapped against the closed genome of Haiti Vibrio cholerae outbreak type isolate 2010EL-1786, fall 2010. Full color saturation represents 100% sequence homology, and gaps indicate regions of divergence. Gaps in the innermost (red) circle for reference isolate 2010EL-1786 represent gaps between coding sequences, not genetic diversity. A) Chromosome I; B) chromosome II. From center: Haiti/Dominican Republic isolates 2
