  1. aStrains ISS 4746 and ISS 4749 belong to the same ST, ST32. Hence, the genes shared by them but not with ISS 3319 and ISS 4060 were treated as strain-specific and these are detailed in the column “ISS 4746 – ISS 4749”
  2. bCDS encoding transcription regulators, components of restriction-modification systems or other cellular and metabolic activities were grouped within the ‘Others’ category
