  1. The BigDye-terminator data are from [5]. For the purposes of this table, those bacteria whose presence was supported by less than ten BigDye-terminator reads have been ignored. Novel bacteria and bacteria without a public genome sequence have also been ignored because they cannot be detected by the molecular probes. "1", a majority of molecular probes for this genome was positive. "0", a majority of molecular probes for this genome was not positive
