  1. Species included in the study, their scientific classification, predicted numbers of protein-coding genes (according to the KEGG Genes database), and the numbers of enzymes (KEGG Pathway database) used for reconstruction of core metabolic networks (OP, obligate endoparasite; F, free-living; FP, facultative parasite).
