Table 2 Distance between the constituent elements at each taxon measured with PaSS.

From: Acquisition of genome information from single-celled unculturable organisms (radiolaria) by exploiting genome profiling (GP)

Taxa* average PaSS
Phylum/Devision 0.550 (-)
Class 0.656 (± 0.034)
Order 0.761 (± 0.090)
Family 0.782 (± 0.056)
Genus 0.822 (± 0.034)
  1. * Organisms examined belong to Proteobacteria, Gram-positive low-G+C group, Basidiomycetes, Bryopsida, Monocotyle-donopsidae, Dicotyledoneae, Mammalia, Aves at the taxon level by class. The primers used were oligonucleotides : dAGAACGCGCCTG (pfM12) and dCAGGGCGCGTAC (pfM19)
  2. # The average PaSS value for non-related pairs of organisms had been statistically obtained to be 0.435 ± 0.091 (Ref. 13).
