Abstract

Microbial genomes harbor genomic islands (GIs), genes presumably acquired via horizontal gene transfer (HGT). We compared GIs of hyperthermophilic, thermophilic, mesophilic, and pathogenic/nonpathogenic species and of small and large genomes. The COG database was used to characterize gene-encoded functions. Putative donors were determined to quantify gene flux between superkingdoms. In ...
