Figure S1ƒSummary of subsystem category distribution of strain 2010137Y genome on the RAST server.

Figure S2ƒPhylogenetic relationship of strain 2010137Y and 32 E.coli reference strains. The maximum-likelihood tree was constructed based on concatenated sequences of 7,518 bp consisting of 8-locus Pasteur’s scheme and 7-locus Achtman’s scheme. All strains were listed with strain name, GenBank accession number and serotype. Strain 2010137Y was labeled with a black diamond, other E.coli reference strains in the MAUVE analysis were labeled with a black triangle.
