  • a Total number of high-quality SNPs determined as described by Katz et al. (15).

  • b Number of hqSNPs located within protein coding genes.

  • c Number of hqSNPs in protein coding genes that are either the core genome or the accessory genome.

  • d Number of hqSNPs in protein coding genes that lead to a synonymous (S) or nonsynonymous (N) change.
