Table 1 The number of protein families found to be overrepresented in each of the three thermophilicity classes.

From: Bayesian prediction of bacterial growth temperature range based on genome sequences

Class of overrepresentation Number of protein families
Thermophiles 8
Mesophiles 0
Psychrophiles 32
  1. Overrepresentation is defined as presence in more than 65% of one class, and at a significantly (p < 0.01) lower frequency in all other classes.
