ProgressiveMauve alignment of seven phage genomes which are related to coliphage rV5. The blocks of similar colour for each phage indicate regions of DNA sequence relatedness; while white regions indicate dissimilar sequence. Below these are illustrated the phage genes as black outlined boxes on the plus (above horizontal) and minus (below horizontal) strands. Please note that the genomes of rV5 and FV3; and, phAPEC8 and phi92 are collinear with each other; and that the initial brown segment in rV5 is found in the same position in FV3, GAP32 and PVP-SE1 (but in this case of the complementary strand); at ca. 65kb in the sequence of SSE-121; and is entirely missing is phi92 and phAPEC8. The fact that many of these genomes are not collinear renders direct comparisons difficult.
