  1. a16S rDNA positions. Numbers in paranthesis refers to polymorphic positions in the 16S rDNA gene and are numbered from 1 to 13. bR refers to a purine (A or G) at that position; Y refers to a pyrimidine (C or T) at that position; and W refers to an A or T at that position. cA, C, G, and T refer to the four deoxynucleotides that DNA comprises. DFR.BHE refers strains from Bheemana Bedu village of Gundlupet region of Karnataka, India maintained in Defence Food Research Laboratory, Mysore, India repository
