Similarity of the Miscanthus × giganteus ( Mxg ) and other monocotyledon genomes. A sequence survey of Mxg was compared to the sorghum whole-genome sequence (red line), the rice whole-genome sequence (blue line) and the maize whole-genome sequence (green line). In addition to the whole-genome sequences the survey was also compared to the predicted sorghum coding regions (CDS) unfiltered (orange line), and the sorghum coding regions with known transposon-related sequences removed (yellow line) using nucleotide BLAST. In all cases, the percentage nucleotide identity of the match (x-axis) is plotted against the percentage of the total reads from the survey with a given percentage identity to the relevant dataset (y-axis). No matches were observed with nucleotide identity below 75% at the e value cutoff used (10-10).
