Additional file 3:

List of open reading frames (ORFs) that were positively or negatively associated with B2-CC1 and/or B2-CC4, as compared to other B2 strains. This table gives the gene name and annotated putative function of the ORFs, which presence based on DNA array results was either positively or negatively associated with B2-CC1 and/or B2-CC4, as compared to other B2 strains. This table is complementary to Figure 3.
