Table 5 Recombination rates in the L. innocua-L. monocytogenes clade and other bacteria

From: Internalin profiling and multilocus sequence typing suggest four Listeria innocua subgroups with different evolutionary distances from Listeria monocytogenes

  1. ND, not done.
  2. a. The ratio of probabilities that a given site is altered through recombination and mutation, representing a measure of how important the effect of recombination is in the diversification of the sample relative to mutation.
  3. b. The ratio of rates at which recombination and mutation occur, representing a measure of how often recombination events happen relative to mutations.
