  1. Data was collected from NCBI's Trace Archive and Genomes Database. The V. cholerae genome was sequenced using a 454/Sanger hybrid approach while the rest of the genomes were sequenced by Sanger sequencing. Note that the P. stewartii genome was found to be particularly hard to finish, despite the high sequence coverage using Sanger sequencing, because of the presence of numerous plasmids in the sequenced strain.
