Figure 8

Low-bound reconstructions for ancestral archaeal forms: genomes close in size to modern hyperthermophiles. Each column shows the total number of annotated protein-coding genes in the respective archaeal species; the colored portions (green for Crenarchaeota, blue for Euryarchaeota, and cyan for Nanoarchaeota) show genes included in arCOGs. The hatched columns show the number of arCOGs assigned to LACA, the Last CrenArchaeal Common Ancestor (LCACA) and the Last EuryArchaeal Common Ancestor (LEACA).
