  1. Genes from twelve out of nineteen classes demonstrate a tendency towards localization with genes from the same class. For each number of class representatives in a cassette, the number of such cassettes among studied genomes is given. The P-value indicates probability of obtaining these co-localization numbers in a random distribution
