  1. Comparison of mean distances in the different eubacterial phyla and the 95% confidence intervals of 10,000 mean values calculated from bootstrap samples. Confidence intervals do not overlap between cyanobacteria and the other eubacterial phyla. Distances of 16S rRNA sequences are significantly smaller in cyanobacteria compared to the other prokaryotes.d W and d B : mean calculated from the original dataset including all distances. d B and d W : mean of 10,000 means calculated using bootstrap sampling.
