Comparative analysis based on the general eggNOG functional categories. The gene content comparisons were done via a BLASTP analysis against the bactNOG subset of the eggNOG database. Two genes were considered to be orthologs if the reciprocal BLASTP hit had a sequence identity of at least 40% and a coverage of at least 75%. Average and standard deviation were calculated for the relative numbers over all species excluding S. espanaensis and the cells were colored based on the significance level.
