Figure 3.

S. epidermidis variable genome is dominated by genes shared by few strains. Only the variable genome is shown. Gene clusters present in all genomes or present in only a single genome are omitted. The presence of a gene (and its paralogs) is indicated by a black bar. Nosocomial and commensal isolate names are colored red and green, respectively. The dendrogram was generated using complete linkage clustering of the presence/absence data.
