Genome comparison of two L. micdadei strains . The complete genome sequences of the two L. micdadei strains included in this study were aligned using the software Mauve. The two strains align perfectly with the exception of three mobile genetic elements specifically present in strain L. micdadei ATCC33218 and one specifically present in the Victorian isolate. The specific regions of each genome are indicated. The 'Lvh region' is indicated, as this region is, with a high number of SNPs, quite divergent between the two isolates.
