Table exhibiting homoplasy of large insertion/deletion events. The first 8 columns represent elements previously reported in USA300 isolates. The last 4 columns represent phage insertion sites discovered in our dataset (number denotes position in FPR3757). P and A represent presence or absence of the site respectively. The P/A for RCH I18 is a 21.6 kb deletion overlapping both the mec and ACME region but not entirely deleting either site.
