Table 1 Phylogeny-informed maximum likelihood-based estimation of the UAG codon meaning in the rhizarian exLh and Iotanema spirale. See the main text for details on the procedure employed. Note that the values of conditional probabilities for the most likely assignments (UAG = L in the rhizarian exLh and UAG = Q in I. spirale) differ so little from 1.00 that they must have been indicated as 1 subtracted by the sum of conditional probabilities of the 19 other assignments
