Abstract: Similarity Plot (S-plot) is a Windows-based application for large-scale comparisons and 2-dimensional visualization of compositional similarities between genomic sequences. This application combines 2 approaches widely used in genomics: window analysis of statistical characteristics along genomes and dot-plot visual representation. S-plot is effective in identifying highly similar regions between genomes as well as regions with unusual compositional properties (RUCPs) within a single genome, which may be indicative of horizontal gene transfer or of locus-specific selective forces. We use S-plot to identify regions that may have originated through horizontal gene transfer through a 2-step approach, by first comparing a genomic sequence to itself and, subsequently, comparing it to the genomic sequence of a closely related taxon. Moreover, by comparing these suspect sequences to one another, we can estimate a minimum number of sources for these putative xenologous sequences. We illustrate the uses of S-plot in a comparison involving Escherichia coli K12 and E. coli O157:H7. In O157:H7, we found 145 regions that have most probably originated through horizontal gene transfer. By using S-plot to compare each of these regions with 277 completely sequenced prokaryotic genomes, 1 sequence was found to have similar compositional properties to the Yersinia pseudotuberculosis genome, indicating a transfer from a Yersinia or Yersinia relative. Based upon our analysis of RUCPs in O157:H7, we infer that there were at least 53 sources of horizontally transferred sequences. " The Author 2006.

Orduna, A.",,"2014",,"Strong damage was observed in Colima Mexico on most of the cultural patrimony (mainly churches) after the 2003 M7.5 earthquake. In order to find a correlation between the observed damage on the historical buildings and the earthquake intensity, the vulnerability is assessed by qualitative methods, including the vulnerability class method (VCM) and the vulnerability index method (VIM). The latter method is modified and adapted in this research to assess the seismic vulnerability of historical buildings such as churches and cathedrals located in areas from high to very high seismicity. The results are intended to serve as preliminary indicators of expected damage levels that allow the local authorities to take measures oriented to disaster prevention. The assessment using both methodologies is developed on 15 historical masonry churches, most of them from XIX century. With the results, a correlation between damage and intensity taking into account a Macroseismic Scale is developed and the qualitative methodologies to assess the seismic vulnerability of historical constructions are compared each other.
