Table 2

Number of orthologous genes of A. tumefaciens with respect to S. meliloti. The number of orthologous genes is shown in bold, with the percentage of eachA. tumefaciens replicon they represent shown in square brackets. The remainder of the genes, which are not orthologs, are shown in the last row. Numbers of putative protein coding genes for each replicon are shown in parentheses.
