  1. The total megabases (Mb) of each genome predicted from alignment against the in silico optical map (or reference), the geographic area each strain was isolated from, the number of variations from each map to the reference genome and the largest (in Kb) observed difference. Variation under 2Kb and telomeric DNA were not included.
  2. arepresents independent differences observed against the reference genome using default assembly parameters. Results can vary by settings.
  3. bthe maximum number of kilobases for a single genomic event outlined in the study as compared to the in silico reference genome.
