  1. The total is based on the total number of protein coding genes in the annotated genome. *Cell motility COG categories may also includes genes involved in secretion systems such as TSS2. This can explain the occurrence of genes of this category in the genome of strain PhosAc3 whilst this bacterium is non-motile.
