*The assessment of the genes common to both strains is based on the homology at the DNA level with the ORFs described for V583 (source TIGR [70]). The BLASTN cutoff e-value was 1e-5. This number includes the proteins with domain polymorphism (see text for details). Estimated number of ORFs calculated by adding the OG1RF-unique ORFs to the number of ORFs shared with V583.
