1 Generation of the phylogenomic profiles

Generation of the Phylogenomic Profiles

Generation of the phylogenomic profiles: 1073 mutual homologs of E.coli and M.tuberculosis, have been selected and scored with BLAST against the genome sequence of 31 bacteria of interest, yielding 1073 profiles of size 31.

2 Results and patterns found in the data

Patterns found in the Data

This figure shows a few pattern vectors obtained by BD and plotted with ClutrFree for a decomposition in k=30 vectors. BD has revealed the bacterial phylogeny for Actinobacteria, Firmicutes and other genuses such as Chlamydiae, Rickettsia and Spirochetes. All Actinobacteria have been grouped in one single pattern and also separated in many patterns . The thickness of the lines is proportional to the stability of each bacteria along the tree branch to which it belongs.
