Supplementary Material

Supplementary Table S1 shows 690 orthologous sets found in the 12 Rickettsia genomes using the Markov Clustering algorithm. Supplementary Table S2 shows a total of 194 core genes that were found to be prone to recombination, of which 60 gene sets were supported by four approaches and 45 gene sets could be identified by three methods.
