Additional File 1:

The 55 bacterial genomes for which at least two strains have been sequenced. For each species and each strain, NCBI accession number and genome length are indicated. The 'MGA aligt.' column indicates if the genomes have been included in an MGA alignment. Genomes corrections are indicated in the 'Correction column' as follows : '-', no correction, 'RC', Reverse Complement strand, and 'TR+x' means that segment in position 1 to x of the genome has been shifted at the end of the genome. A brief comment is given for genomes excluded from MGA alignments.
