  1. † The taxonomic classification is according to http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Taxonomy/. The common path between each and M. genitalium is shown in bold.
  2. ‡ The evaluated divergence distance aims to provide a quantitative assessment of the taxonomic distance. The values are derived from the scores of the pair-wise alignments between the 16S RNA from each species and the 16S RNA from M. genitalium (see Methods). The same divergence order was obtained when distance matrix was retrieved from greengenes - a 16s RNA gene database [38] (divergence distance scores ordered as in the table: 0, 0.14, 0.25, 0.31, 0.63, see Methods).
