Figure 2

Maximum-likelihood phylogenetic tree of the deduced amino acid sequences of Rubisco large subunit genes obtained from GeoChip 3.0, showing the phylogenetic relationship among the five Rubisco clusters. The depth and width of each wedge is proportional to the branch lengths and number of Rubisco sequences, respectively. Some individual genes detected are shown in bold. The scale indicates the number of amino acid substitutions per site and the tree is outgroup rooted with YP_353362 (Rhodobacter sphaeroides 2.4.1).
