  • a  A pool of approximately 100,000 independent transposon mutants was analyzed by the Tn-seq circle method after growth under different conditions.

  • b  Authentic locations were defined as those identified in multiple Tn-seq assays of samples derived from the transposon mutant pool.

  • c  The values for the initial pool represent two replicate assays of a single DNA preparation.
