Road map of the phyla Bacteroidetes, Spirochaetes, Tenericutes (Mollicutes), Acidobacteria, Fibrobacteres, Fusobacteria, Dictyoglomi, Gemmatimonadetes, Lentisphaerae, Verrucomicrobia, Chlamydiae, and Planctomycetes

Abstract

This revised road map updates previous outlines of Garrity and Holt (2001) and Garrity et al. (2005) with the description of additional taxa and new phylogenetic analyses. While the outline/road map seeks to be complete for all taxa validated prior to July 1, 2006, some taxa described after that date are included.

Keywords

rRNA Gene Sequence Type Species Phylogenetic Group Ureaplasma Urealyticum Genus Flavobacterium 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
