Conservation of reference plasmid genes amongst isolates with plasmid-associated iuc/iro lineages. Cells show circularised heatmaps indicating the frequency of each gene in a given reference plasmid (column), amongst isolates that contain a given iro and/or iuc lineage (row). Around each circle, genes are ordered by their order in the corresponding reference plasmid. Percentages in the middle of each cell indicate the mean coverage of the reference plasmid sequence (column), amongst isolates belonging to each iro/iuc lineage (row); bold labels and boxes highlight groups of isolates carrying the same iuc/iro lineage as the reference plasmid. ‘*’ indicates the two plasmids represented by incomplete plasmid sequences
