  • a Number of 16S rRNA gene copies per genome based on genome reference.

  • b Percentage of total bacterial 16S rRNA gene in the mock community according to DNA concentration.

  • c NA, not available. For strains that lack whole-genome sequences, the genome sizes and 16S rRNA gene copy numbers of the reference strain were used (6972).
