Pattern correlation across multiple genome-scale datasets

The spatial organization of genomes is highly nonrandom and often exhibits periodic patterns. Shown here is a contour plot that highlights the degree of pattern correlation across multiple genome-scale datasets for Escherichia coli (identified using wavelet analysis). The overlap in these spatial patterns reveals that genome design involves a sophisticated multi-parameter, multi-length scale organization that is not solely dependent upon information content (see Allen et al).
