Additional File 1:

Distribution of REP sequences in genomes of selected bacteria. REP coordinates, orientation and number of mismatches with respect to REP sequences in Table 1 are indicated. If dimorphic REPs appertain to a given RAYT (for example in Enterobacter sakazakii), they are denoted as REPA (upper line in Table 1) and REPB (lower line in Table 1).
