Fig. 1

Phylogenetic tree highlighting the position of T. cyclicum within the family Piscirickettsiaceae . T. cyclicum is shown relative to the type strains of Thioalkalimicrobium and all species from the three closest related genera (Thiomicrospira, Hydrogenovibrio and Galenea) within the family. The tree was inferred from 1,530 aligned characters [58, 59] of the 16S rRNA gene sequence under the ML criterion [60]. The rooting shown was inferred by the midpoint-rooting method [36]. The branches are scaled in terms of the expected number of substitutions per site (bar). Numbers adjacent to the branches are support values from 1,000 ML bootstrap replicates [61] (left) and from 1,000 maximum-parsimony bootstrap replicates [62] (right) if larger than 60 %. Lineages with type strain genome sequencing projects registered in GOLD [7] are labeled with one asterisk, those also listed as ‘Complete and Published’ with two asterisks (see [37] and AGFA00000000 for T. aerophilum)
