Phylogenetic Tree based on uniform SYNERGY orthogroups, scaled by phylogenetic distance. The labels A-C indicate the branches selected for further analysis in our dN/dS analysis (A: The branch leading to the Mtb cluster; B: The branch leading to the pathogenic Mycobacteria; C: The branch leading to the non-pathogenic, soil-dwelling Mycobacteria). See Methods for details on the phylogenetic tree construction.
