Table 4 MulitFun categories exhibiting unusual levels of allelic substitution among the four major lineages

From: Genome-wide detection and analysis of homologous recombination among sequenced strains of Escherichia coli

HR detected Genes Percent recombined χ2 score Multi-Fun Level 2 categories
5 144 3.5 4.52 Ribosome and peptidoglycan structure
10 237 4.2 5.47 Cell division, cell protection, and adaptation to stress
14 279 5.0 4.35 Protein-related information
20 329 6.1 2.94 RNA-related information
386 4,035 9.6 Not reported All other functions (including unknown)
48 357 13.5 9.24 Building block biosynthesis
16 109 13.8 3.21 DNA-related information
7 40 17.5 3.56 Group translocators (PTS)
9 46 19.6 6.24 Motility
  1. Categories with few members such as ribosome and peptidoglycan structure are combined together, as are three types of cell processes. We computed a χ2 goodness-of-fit statistic for each category, but do not report p values because dependencies exist between categories.
