JGI MiSI - Type Strain Analysis

The cliques generated as part of the project were explored in detail. The composition of these cliques highlights the unexpected distribution of type strains. Type Strain is defined as a living culture chosen to represent a prokaryotic species; therefore, the type strain of a species should not be identical or highly similar with the type strain of any other species. Indeed we find that of the 445 cliques containing at least one type strain, 414 contain a single type strain. 31 cliques contain type strains from multiple species, that might be the result of either classification based on clinical evidence or incorrect practices where the classification of a single strain species was forced with low evidence. These cliques have been described in detail in the table below:
