A phylogeny-driven genomic encyclopaedia of Bacteria and Archaea

A phylogeny-driven genomic encyclopaedia of Bacteria and Archaea

 p1056

There are now nearly 1,000 completed bacterial and archaeal genomes available, but as most of them were chosen for sequencing on the basis of their physiology, the data are limited by a highly biased phylogenetic distribution. To explore the value added by choosing microbial genomes for sequencing on the basis of their evolutionary relationships, the genomes of 56 species of Bacteria and Archaea selected to maximize phylogenetic coverage are now sequenced and analysed.
