Supertree (cladogram) of 13 bootstrap ML trees of the flagellar genes shared among the four analyzed genomes. The phylum (or more specific taxonomic identifier) of each species is listed: (F) Firmicutes, (S) Spirochaetes, (E-P) Epsilonproteobacteria, (MEL) Melainabacteria, (A) Aquificae, (T) Thermotogae, (D-P) Deltaproteobacteria, (Pl) Planctomycetes, (B) Bacteroidetes, (A-P) Alphaproteobacteria, (B-P) Betaproteobacteria, (G-P) Gammaproteobacteria. In all 13 individual trees, Melainabacteria branched with Firmicutes and Spirochaetes.
