The percentage of orthologous TCS proteins varies exponentially with genetic distance. As genetic distance between two strains increases (substitution rate for the 16S rRNA gene), the percentage of proteins from either genome that are successfully clustered decreases exponentially. Each black diamond represents one pairwise comparison. Comparisons shown include all possible intra-genus and intra-family comparisons (ie. between AF, Ad1, AdC and AK, between Mx, Mf, Sa and Cc, and between Sc and Ca), and a representative sample of within sub-order and order comparisons (Mf vs. Ho/AF/AK, Sc vs. Sa/Ho/Bb, Ho vs. Pp, Mx vs. Ad1, Sa vs. AdC and Ca vs. AF). A notable departure from the trend is the comparison between Ca and Sc (black cross)
