Table 2 The specifics of all large putative horizontally acquired gene clusters from chromosome II of V. vulnificus CMCP6, including their δ* (against V. vulnificus chromosome I) and GC composition values compared with chromosome II of V. vulnificus CMCP6. Vv5%, Vv10% and Vv10% are non-anomalous genomic fragments used as a reference clade. Ct1 and Ct2 represent Chlamydia trachomatis genomic fragments and are used as outgroups. Zhang and Zhang [22] did not test V. vulnificus CMCP6 chromosome II.
