Genome Comparison

We have also compared whole genome of Rhodococcus imtechensis RKJ300 with those of Rhodococcus jostii RHA1, Rhodococcus opacus PD630 and Rhodococcus sp. JVH1. It was done using Jspecies software, which uses BLAST and Mummer at backend to compare sequence similarity. OFS v1.2 was used to find gene clusters within these genomes. This was further assisted with manual curation for all these strains.
Following table shows characterization of Rhodococcus imtechensis RKJ300 with those of Rhodococcus jostii RHA1, Rhodococcus opacus PD630 and Rhodococcus sp. JVH1 genomes.

Details of genome comparison have been incorporated in the manuscript "Genome annotation of Rhodococcus imtechensis RKJ300: Insights into its catabolic and storage potential", Shailesh Kumar, Surendra Vikram, Kumardeep Chaudhary and Gajendra Pal Singh Raghava, Plos one (Submitted).
