Supplementary Material

Supplementary Table 1. Identified CRISPR spacers in CRISPR/cas regions of sequenced P. acnes strains. Identified spacers from all currently publicly available P. acnes genomes were extracted (reference 55, 64, 66) and were screened for homology to known nucleotide sequences.

Supplementary Table 2. Identified CRISPR spacers originating from P. acnes phages. Based on all the available CRISPR spacers of P. acnes (reference 55, 64, 66, see Supplementary Table 1), spacers with similarities to published P. acnes phage genomes were analyzed based on their length, GC content, orientation and localization.
