| Circular representation of the H. pylori chromosome. The outer concentric circle is the predicted coding region on the plus strnd; the second concentric circle is the predicted coding region on the minus strand. At the third and fourth concentric circles are insertion sequence (IS) elements (red) -- short DNA sequences in bacteria capable of transposing to a new genomic location -- and other repeats (green) on the plus and minus strands respectively. The fifth and sixth concentric circles are tRNAs (blue), rRNAs (red), and sRNAs (green) on plus and minus strands respectively.
