Regions of Genomic Plasticity - RGP Finder

Acinetobacter baylyi ADP1 - chromosome ACIAD.1
The RGPfinder method finds potentially horizontally transferred genes which are gathered in Regions of Genomic Plasticity (RGP):
  • Genomic Regions have a minimal length set to 5kb.
  • They contain CDSs not belonging to conserved region (in terms of synteny group) between all the compared organisms.
  • Organisms having less than 50% of genes in synteny with the reference organism are removed from the list below.
The results also shows the results of two differents Genomic Island (GIs) prediction methods:
  • SIGI-HMM measures codon usage to identify possible GIs (Waack et al., 2006).
  • AlienHunter (IVOM) : based on variable-length k-mers bias (Vernikos and Parkhill, 2006).

#WARNING# The region prediction depends of the selected organisms for comparison.
If you select unrelated organisms in term of synteny the predicted regions will then not only belong to flexible gene pool.
