Large genomic duplications. By viewing the coverage of mapped Solexa data graphically across all genomic coordinates, four large duplications were found in the lactate endpoints, two of which are present in two endpoints. The image shows the coverage of mapped Solexa reads from LactK in the region of a large duplication. In total, the following duplications were found: in LactB and LactK, a 4× and 3× duplication of approximately 40 kb from genomic coordinates 1253000 to 1294000; in LactF, a 3× duplication of approximately 12 kb from 1774000 to 1786000; in LactE, a 2× duplication of approximately 140 kb from 3620000 to 3760000; in LactA and LactE, a 2× duplication of approximately 87 kb from 3946000 to 4033000.
