Method P.2 right column 3rd paragraph: "Genomic signatures of adaptation to fast growth: Following a previous work [ref 35], [investigators] extracted from primary literature 214 minimal generation times (d) of species of bacteria and archaea (Table S1). [They] used this data to assess how genomic traits correlate with minimal generation times. [They] started by analyzing its correlation to genome size. Historically, microbial genomes have been viewed as short and compact due to selection for rapid replication and fast growth. In agreement with previous work [refs 40,41], [they] found no evidence for a positive correlation between minimal generation time and genome size or genome density (Spearman correlations ρ=-0.10 and -0.08, p-value = 0.13 and 0.24). The reasoning that smaller genomes allow for quicker replication is belied by the observation that replication can be initiated before the previous rounds have finished. There is thus no necessity for a direct correlation between genome size and minimal generation time, as observed."
Comments Supplementary Table 1: "Generation times were retrieved from the literature. Researchers defined the minimum generation time (Column "d" in hours) as the smallest value reported (Column "d reference") for one species. For very few bacteria the generation times for closely related species were used. The optimum growth temperature of the species (Column "OGT" in °C) was retrieved from DSMZ database. The predicted origin of replication (Column "Ori") was retrieved from DoriC database."
