Genomic data. Samba virus genome characterization performed using the java-based free software Blast2go (available at http://www.blast2go.com/b2ghome): (A) Graphical distribution of the length of the predicted Samba virus genes, showing the predominance of small ORFs ranging mainly from 150 to 1500 nucleotides. (B) Graphical distribution of the sequence similarity search for the predicted Samba virus genes. The greatest number of hits were found in Mimivirus, followed by Mamavirus. (C) Biological processes assigned to the predicted Samba virus genes, showing a large proportion of genes involved in nucleic acid processing and cellular metabolism, as well as viral morphogenesis and intracellular regulation.
