Motivation: The evolutionary distance inferred from gene-order comparisons of related bacteria is dependent on the model. Therefore, it is highly important to establish reliable assumptions before inferring its magnitude. Results: We investigate the patterns of dotplots between species of bacteria with the purpose of model selection in gene-order problems. We find several categories of data which can be explained by carefully weighing the contributions of reversals, transpositions, symmetricaldoi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btn111 pmid:18381402 fatcat:lnreyci62bgrjofcerbitk7jta
