Phylogenetic tree highlighting the position of T. oceani JW/IW-1228PT relative to the type strains of the other species within the family Thermoanaerobacteraceae. The trees were inferred from 1,316 aligned characters [9,10] of the 16S rRNA gene sequence under the maximum likelihood criterion  and rooted in accordance with the current taxonomy . The branches are scaled in terms of the expected number of substitutions per site. Numbers above branches are support values from 850 bootstrap replicates  if larger than 60%. Lineages with type strain genome sequencing projects registered in GOLD  are shown in blue, published genomes in bold [32,33,CP001785, CP001145].
