  1. Note: The occurrence and the location of trpB genes were coded according to the following scheme used in the top line: S2 species possess exactly one, non operon-based trpB2 gene, s2: ditto, the gene is located inside the trp operon. trpB1 was treated analogously. i2_o2 are species possessing an trpB2 gene inside and a second trpB2 outside the operon, i1_o2 are species with an operon-based trpB1 and a non operon-based trpB2, and i1_o1 are species possessing an operon-based and at least one non operon-based trpB1. The number of genomes having the same species-type is given in brackets. The acronyms following the species name classify trpB genes; see Results. Numbers give tryptophan codons occurring in the respective gene. The abbreviations indicate hyperthermophilic (HT), thermoacidophilic (TA), thermophilic (TP), mesophilic (MS), halophilic (HP), or hyperthermophilic + halophilic species (YP). The last line of the table gives mean values for the occurrence of tryptophan codons.
