Phylogenetic diversity of the type strains of Bacteria and Archaea based on the SSU rRNA genes as of June 2011. Blue: phylogenetic diversity of current complete and ongoing genome projects from 1,219 type strains (GOLD 1/2011); Red: of the 1,000 type strains proposed to be sequenced here; Pink: phylogenetic diversity of all type strains available at the Living Tree Project (LTP) [9]. All our calculations are based on the LTP tree from September 2010 (latest version) * which contains 8,029 of the about 9,000 type strains.
