The complete Mycoplasma pneumoniae genome was assembled from 28 cosmid sequences. Each sequence is terminated by an EcoRI restriction site. Two adjacent cosmid sequences are only overlapping by their terminal EcoRI restriction site.

The cirular order of these cosmids is:



->VXpSPT7 (->E07) 
Each cosmid is annotated with the prefix: pcosMP*** (eg. pcosMPE07) with the exception of VXpSPT7

Nomenclature of the ORFs

Instead of a numerical nomenclature of the ORFs like for M. genitalium or H. influenzae, we decided to take a cosmid orientated nomenclature.

All open reading frames are annotated as follows:

The name of an ORF is for example: E07_orf1627
