  • a Samples of 100 g spinach were spiked with STEC Sakai.

  • b Percentage of the bacterial population belonging to E. coli phylogroup E.

  • c Percentage of total reads mapping to the STEC Sakai genome.

  • d Average chromosome coverage. The values were normalized to 10,000,000 total reads per sample. The coverage for the two plasmids was greater than that of the chromosome for all samples.

  • e Average of triplicate biological samples.

  • f Average of duplicate biological samples.
