Analysis of potential P sequencesa

• a We analyzed the number of variants that contained P sequences and therefore would produce an underpiliated colony and could outgrow during the 22-h growth. The number of P variants was divided by total variants to obtain the % P. P values were calculated by chi-square tests comparing P read proportions between biological replicates (A versus B). All pairwise comparisons of summed P reads under each condition were nonsignificant (P > 0.05). ND, not determined; NA, not applicable.
