Title: Accounting for horizontal gene transfers explains conflicting hypotheses regarding the position of aquificales in the phylogeny of Bacteria
Authors: Bastien Boussau, Laurent Guéguen and Manolo Gouy
Keywords: Accounting for horizontal gene transfers explains conflicting
Issue Date: Oct-2008
Description: This study revealed that Aquifex is most often found as a neighbor to Thermotogales. Moreover, informational genes, which appeared to be less often transferred to the Aquifex lineage than non-informational genes, most often placed Aquificales close to Thermotogales. To ensure these results did not come from long branch attraction or compositional artefacts, a subset of carefully chosen proteins from a wide range of bacterial species was selected for further scrutiny.
