Nitrogen-fixing organisms are very diverse prokaryotes that have been identified scattered in the phylogenetic trees reconstructed from the comparative analysis of ribosomal RNA gene sequences (Martinez-Romero, 1985, Young, 1992). Although 16S rRNA gene-based phytogenies have been criticized and the Universal Tree of Life questioned (Pennisi, 1998), novel approaches from proteome analysis derived from genomes of 20 organisms provide support to the unrooted Universal Tree of Life based on 16S… CONTINUE READING
