Supplementary Material

Supplementary figure 1: Percentages of identified proteins to predicted ORFs of B. pseudomallei genome according to their biological functions.

Supplementary figure 2: Gene ontology classification of the identified genes derived from the proteome reference map of B. pseudomallei grown under early stationary phase.

Supplementary figure 3: Chromosomal preferential expression in B. pseudomallei proteome reference map. Percentages of identified genes (x-axis) were plotted against gene ontology classification (y-axis) according to their chromosomal localization (chromosome 1 or chromosome 2).

Supplementary figure 4: Biological metabolic pathways extracted from gene expression of B. pseudomallei during early stationary phase of growth. Each gene locus was queried against the KEGG website ( using B. pseudomallei strain K96243 database. Gene symbols highlighted in red indicate RpoS-regulated genes reported in reference [9] in the main text.
