Extended Data Fig. 7: Comparison of anchors and cores.

From: Tracking microbial evolution in the human gut using Hi-C reveals extensive horizontal gene transfer, persistence and adaptation

Extended Data Fig. 7

(a) Shown for all 44 MAGs (genome unions) is the breakdown of genes into ‘core-only, ‘anchor-only’, ‘both’ or ‘neither’, sorted according to the ‘both’ fraction. (b) The fraction of the 4 gene classifications, colored as in (a), is averaged over all 44 MAGs. Core-only genes (29%) are present due to the stringent selection of anchors which considers only long contigs (>10 kb).
