a: Numbers in parenthesis show number of strains with given phenotype, for instance there are 32 strains that could grow on sugar D-turanose and 7 strains that could not grow on this sugar. Phenotype and ~omics data are available at the web address of PhenoLink.

b: For some strains phenotypes could not be determined accurately resulting in an ambiguous phenotype "Maybe". Using the web-interface of PhenoLink such phenotypes can be discarded from the association analysis (see Methods and User's Guide available at PhenoLink's web page).
