TABLE 4

Classification of novel prophage-like sequences into types 1, 2, and 3a

TABLE 4
  • a The novel predicted sequences were aligned against representative phages SC1, SC2, and P-JXGC-3 of types 1, 2, and 3. Coverage (C) values corresponding to two-way local alignments are presented in this table. Blue, mustard, and pink cells stand for high, intermediate, and low alignment values. Note that the threshold values used to classify coverage (C) vary according to sequence length and position in BLAST (either query or target) (see Materials and Methods). White cells with “NA” entries represent absence of significant hits. Sequences were categorized as type 1 (red), type 2 (blue), or type 3 (green) sequences; unclassified sequences with resemblance to the representative phages (black); or unclassified without resemblance (gray).
