  1. The Genbank accession number (column 2) of 16sRNA gene sequence of each of the 154 bacterial isolates and their corresponding similarity search result (column 4) (detailed in Additional file 3: Table S3) and characteristic ML clustering (column 5) (detailed in Additional file 6: Figure S1) is shown. Overall the 154 bacterial isolates were identified belonging to 31 species. Enterococcus and Staphylococcus, and two species of Lactobacillus (L. gallinarum and L. helveticus) showed cohesive intrageneric clustering in contrast to, cohesive cluster of all sequences of a particular species and distinct cluster with all other species sequences, and are shown here as bold. Lactobacillus mucosae showed deep intraspecies split and marked with asterisk (*)
