Figure 2

Frequency of mutations. The main graph shows the number of endpoint strains in which a specific gene was mutated out of the 11 adaptive endpoints. The smaller graph shows the number of endpoint strains that have acquired a mutation in at least one gene of a general category, such as metabolism or the cell envelope. The bar color of specific genes in the main graph corresponds to the gene's category classification in the smaller graph.
