Distances of repeats to neighboring ORFs.

<p>(A-C) Analysis of the distance of repeat sequences relative to adjacent ORFs for <i>Xcc</i> (A), <i>Xac</i> (B) and <i>Ana</i> (C). Repeats can be either located upstream or downstream of the next neighboring ORF. Repeats were grouped into three categories according to increasing distance from the respective: distance of > 100 bp (gray), 50–100 bp (light blue) and repeats overlapping with ORFs or located in a distance of up to 50 bp from the respective start or stop codon are grouped together (dark blue). (D) Schematic of a repeat being located in close proximity, upstream of the neighboring ORF on the non-coding strand. (E) Schematic of a repeat being located in close proximity, downstream of the neighboring ORF on the non-coding strand.</p>
