Representation of the presence of ancestral genes in each phylogroup. According to the MGRA program (http://mgra.cblab.org), the positions of the phylogroups along these horizontal lines correspond to the percentage of genomes carrying between 95 and 99% of hypothetical ancestral genes identified as ancient genome. Black point represents the hypothetical ancestral genome. Light blue circles correspond to members of FGB2 lineage and dark blue circles represent the phylogroups assigned to EB1A lineage. Lineage D is shown as a white circle. Cryptic clade I was used as outgroup in order to confirm the intermediate evolutionary position of EPEC-503225 and KTE146 strains (see main text)
