aThe number and percentage of the total genes within each of the genomes, assigned to each functional group are shownb.

bThose genes with significant PID and/or query/target coverage hits; significance equals blastx/blastp PID of at least 25% and/or 75% query or target coverage.

c The incomplete WesB strain genome was within one scaffold.
