Phylogenetic tree analysis of atypical genes from SimiTri analysis. The atypically clustering genes circled in Figure 1a-c were analyzed by BlastP analysis and phylogenetic trees generated with outputs scaled to show distance between sequences. The BmiGI entries were TC14523 (a), TC9268 (b), TC13445 (c) and TC12600 (d) and the TC query sequence is noted in the figure as Rhipicephalus microplus in bold underlined text. The alignments used to generate the trees are included as Additional files 2, 4, 6, 8 in text format. The entire tree is included in pdf file format as Additional files 1, 3, 5, and 7 and only subtrees showing the nearest related sequences are included here.
