  1. For each gene, we indicate its status in the other Brucella and O. anthropi. This table only includes the genes that are discussed in the text. A more extensive version of this table is given as Additional file 7.
  2. Abbreviations include: * for internal stop, a number indicates multiple stops, fs for frameshift, + for an intact sequence, Mult. Diffs for multiple difference, Mult. Fs for multiple frameshifts, NF for not found.
