n1_4mer:GRV/n1_4mer:RV = (Global Relative Variance of OU patterns) / (Local Relative Variance of OU patterns)

n0_4mer:D = Distance between local and global OU patterns

n0_4mer:PS = Distance between 2 strands of same DNA molecule

Selected loci indicated by large D, increased GRV associated with decreased RV and moderate increase in PS

NC_014147: Moraxella catarrhalis RH4 chromosome, complete genome

NCBI: NC_014147

Host Lineage: Moraxella catarrhalis; Moraxella; Moraxellaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Moraxella catarrhalis is an emerging human-restricted unencapsulated gram-negative mucosal pathogen. For long considered to be a commensal of the upper respiratory tract, the bacterium has now firmly established its position as an etiological cause of otitis media (OM) and exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is the third most common cause of childhood OM after Haemophilus influenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae, being responsible for up to 20% of the cases. Further, M. catarrhalis is the second most common cause of exacerbations of COPD after H. influenzae, being responsible for 10 to 15% of the exacerbations, annually accounting for 2 to 4 million episodes in the USA.
