  • a Adjusted call determinations-for Saur2a qualifiers containing ≥70% or <70% perfect-match probe sets to chromosomal sequences of each sequenced strain.

  • b Values are numbers of qualifiers that would actually be determined to be absent, undeterminable, or present based on strain-specific adjusted call cutoffs. Values in parentheses are percentages.

  • c The <0.70 fraction included an analysis of all qualifiers that contained less than 70% perfect-match probe sets to chromosomal DNA for each sequenced strain.

  • d A similar analysis was performed for qualifiers with ≥70% perfect-match probe sets that represent a gene within each sequenced strain.
