  1. NA, not applicable, refers to strains in which no plasmids are naturally present. Accession numbers refer to the genome sequence entry in NCBI Nucleotide database. Coding sequences, pseudogenes, and RNA genes were identified from available annotations in the NCBI Genebank database. tRNA and rRNA genes were re-identified using tRNAscan and RNAmmer respectively. Conserved and strain-specific sequences were determined using mGenomeSubtractor, with an H-value cut-off 0.81 and 0.41 respectively.
