  1. aCMM core: C. militaris (CCM), M. anisopliae and M. acridum genes grouped with a cutoff E value of 1e-5 during reciprocal Blast analysis. bCMA restricted: C. militias and M. anisopliae restricted genes grouped with a cutoff E value of 1e-5. cCMC restricted: C. militaris and M. acridum restricted genes grouped at a cutoff E value of 1e-5. dPHI genes, pathogen-host interaction genes predicted by blast analysis against the PHI database [72]. Identity was estimated at the amino acid level. GPCR, G-protein coupled receptor; MFS, major facilitator superfamily; NA, not available; SM, secondary metabolite; TSA, trypsin, subtilisin and aspartyl protease.
