Comparison of closely related genome sequences can provide a clue as to how macroscopic genome polymorphisms were formed through various events of recombination. However, this approach has been limited to relatively simple polymorphisms such as insertion, deletion and inversion. In the present study, we tried to extend this approach to more complex genome polymorphisms that were observed when four genome sequences of bacterial genus Neisseria were compared. The first polymorphism was an… CONTINUE READING
