The ID column is the NCBI Taxonomy DB [42] identifier. The pathways column is the number of MetaCyc pathways that occur in that taxon based on its Taxonomic-Range slot. The unique pathways column is the number of MetaCyc base pathways for that taxon that are unique relative to KEGG pathways. The percent unique column is the fraction of MetaCyc base pathways for that taxon that are unique relative to KEGG pathways, with rows with a fraction greater than 50% shown in bold. The rows of the table are sorted with respect to the NCBI Taxonomy. Relative taxonomic rank is indicated by indentation. Taxa of the same rank are ordered by decreasing percent unique pathways. The taxon of “Cellular Organisms” is included to provide a baseline from which to compare other taxa.
