Table S1: Primer sequences used for PCR and sequencing of heterologous sites in E. coli rRNA operons.

Table S2: Gene conversion events observed in endpoint clones isolated from 15 lineages of a mutation accumulation experiment after 13,750 generations of evolution.

File S1: Input files and Python script for estimating the underlying gene conversion rates between E. coli rRNA operons from the set of gene conversions observed in a mutation accumulation experiment. The script also tests whether there are more or fewer gene conversions affecting certain rRNA copies or loci within the 23S or 16S rRNA genes than expected by chance.
