Comparison of the general features for O1 V. cholerae N16961 and
non-O1 V. cholerae PS15 contrasting the base pair lengths (bp), GC
content, and genes associated with the biological or physiological
categories such as virulence, disease, defense, membrane transport, DNA
metabolism, regulons, dormancy, sporulation, phages, prophages,
transposable elements and plasmids.
