Phylogenetic distribution of S. espanaensis proteins based on BlastP hits against the RefSeq database. The amino acid sequences of all predicted CDS in the genome of S. espanaensis were compared against the RefSeq protein database  (from August 2011) using BLASTP. The species for each best hit (e-value cutoff 1e-10, hit must cover at least 75% of query and subject) was retrieved and the results were plotted from the least to the most abundantly hit group in the respective taxonomic level. For reasons of clarity, groups with few hits were either lumped together (e.g. under "Other Bacteria") or omitted entirely.
