Phylogeny and Evolution
Beginning in the late 1970s, results from a variety of studies enabled an increasingly detailed Mollicutes phylogenetic tree to be reconstructed4. The overall tree is based on 16S rRNA sequenceExpand

Phylogenetic analysis of the mycoplasmas.
The phylogenetic relationships between the mycoplasmas and bacteria have been established from a comparative analysis of their 16S rRNA oligonucleotide catalogs. The genera Mycoplasma, Spiroplasma,Expand

Taxonomy of bacterial viruses: establishment of tailed virus genera and the other Caudovirales
SummaryBacterial viruses have been classified into 13 families and 1 unassigned genus. A new order, Caudovirales, has now been established, comprising the three families of tailed bacterial viruses,Expand

Nannobacteria: size limits and evidence.
The term “nannobacteria” has recently been applied to objects found in geological specimens from Mars and Earth. In their report “Search for past life on Mars: Possible relic biogenic activity inExpand

Identification of an enveloped phage, mycoplasma virus L172, that contains a 14-kilobase single-stranded DNA genome.
We have found that mycoplasma virus L172 is an enveloped globular virion containing circular, single-stranded DNA of 14.0 kilobases. L172 has been reported by other workers to have a double-strandedExpand
