  1. RNA type and subtype: Class of transcripts according to the classification in Figure 3. Replicon: C, chromosome; A, pSymA; B, pSymB. Number: number of identified sRNAs per class, subclass and replicon. *Candidates derived from Illumina/Solexa sequencing that did not allow for identifying the DNA strand. Therefore, subclassification is missing for these candidates.
