Probability of head-on collisions predicted for the 3.3-Mbp to 4.25-Mbp region of the chromosomea

TABLE 2
  • a Probability of head-on collisions [P(HO)] was predicted for the 3.3-Mbp to 4.25-Mbp region of the chromosome which includes the inverted region of the ΔrnhAdnaArrnD-rrnE strain. The values were calculated by taking the ratio of the sum of RNA coverage values of all genes on the lagging strand with respect to the single predominant ori position to the total RNA coverage for the region [P(HO) = sum(lagging-strand RNA coverage)/total RNA coverage]. The analysis was done for different classes of genes separately by using the functional annotations for genes from the NC_000913.3 file (.ptt and .rnt).
