[ ] shows total number of the KEGG modules containing branched modules. “Rare” indicates the modules completed by less than 10% of 768 prokaryotic species. Universal: the modules completed by more than 70% of 768 prokaryotic species, Restricted: the modules completed by less than 30% of 768 prokaryotic species. Diversified: the modules that varies in the module completion ratio among 768 prokaryotic species, Non-prokaryotic: the modules not to be completed by any prokaryotic species.
