Figure 7

A reconstruction of gene gain and loss in archaea. Each branch is labeled by 3 numbers: black, the (inferred) number of arCOGs in the node to which the given branch leads; blue, number of arCOGs lost along the branch; red, number of arCOGs gained along the branch. The red circles on branches denote hyperthermophiles, and blue circles denote mesophiles and moderate thermophiles.
