Genomic organization of the novel 14 kb transposon and its insertion site in isolate t021#04. Genes on the forward strand are depicted as right-sided arrows; genes located on the reverse strand are depicted as left-sided arrows. The transposon inserted into the gene encoding the carboxylesterase type B, whose parts border the insertion element both up- and downstream. The inserted genes are highlighted in turquoise; the inverted repeats (IR) are marked with red and the direct repeats (DR) are highlighted with light blue. For each gene, the locus tags are given (see also Additional File 6 for further details)
