Figure 2

Synteny among the 5 prevalent VDOGs. Comparison of the normalized distribution of the distance, in genes, between the genes associated to the four proteins of the proposed core genome (VDOGs 53, 72, 105, 731, and 821), and a null model created from a randomization for the Herpesviridae (A). For the Myoviridae (B), the genes of the ribonucleotide reductase (alpha and beta subunits), DNA terminase, and DNA polymerase (VDOGs 53, 72, 105, and 821) are compared to the null distribution. In the inset box, n corresponds to the number of representative proteomes analyzed (for the real distribution; blue line); and the total number of iterations n = 10,000 for the null distribution (red line).
