Figure 11

Distribution of the median genome, pangenome and estimated supergenome sizes over the evolutionary tree of prokaryotes. The tree is from MicrobesOnline [73]. Areas of the circles are proportional to the number of genes in the respective genomes (median), pangenome, a006Ed supergenome. FHA, facultative host-associated; FL, free-living; O, open supergenome; P, obligate intracellular parasite.
