Analysis of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in plasmids. The left dot plot shows the prevalence and abundance of 86 ARG-positive (Additional file 2: Table S14) and 229 ARG-negative plasmids according to the Resfams database. The y-axis shows the number of mapped reads per 10-kb region on a log scale. The ARG-positive and ARG-negative plasmids are coloured orange and green, respectively. The right box plot shows the abundance distributions of plasmids with or without ARGs, and their difference is significant as ** denotes p < 0.01 (Wilcoxon’s rank-sum test)
