Bayesian phylogenetic tree of mtMutS, MutS and MSH gene families. The majority-rule consensus unrooted tree of four runs of 107 MCMC generations with samples drawn every 1000 generations and 36 generations discarded as burn-in. Branches in bold had >95% support while other branches are labelled with lower posterior probabilities. Maximum parsimony analysis produced an unrooted tree with similar general topology (not shown). Coloured ovals delineate the major taxonomic groups or gene families. Taxon sample sizes are given in parentheses for each circled clade.
