  • a Location of the cut may be represented by two numbers. Only polymorphic sites were analyzed, and thus breakpoint locations are not necessarily consecutive nucleotides.

  • b Proportional difference is number of differences between the parental strain under comparison and the potential recombinant divided by the total number of differences between both parental strains and potential recombinant. The percentage is given in parentheses.
