Properties of identified VNSSRs. a Relative contribution of different VNSSRs types to the Strong, Moderate and Weak candidate phase variable genes. Other: all non-homopolymeric repeats. G/C: guanine or cytosine variable homopolymeric tracts. A/T: adenine or thymine variable homopolymeric tracts. b Nei’s diversity index distribution of VNSSRs associated with the 52 strong, 60 moderate and 165 weak candidate phase variable genes. Genes associated with intragenic and intergenic VNSSRs are represented full and empty circles, respectively. The thick horizontal lines represent distributions median. p: Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney p value
