Genes in G. sulphuraria probably originating from horizontal gene transfer (HGT) and possible 'donors' from which they descended. From left to right: gene identifiers; protein family (ranked by size); number of genes/paralogs resulting from the gene transfer (a number in brackets indicates that not all genes in this family result from HGT and gives the total number of family members); annotation of the encoded protein; for those cases here a detailed phylogenetic analysis was performed, the figure displaying the phylogenetic tree; organism that is the closest sequenced relative (or descendant) of the 'donor' organism from which the gene might have originated, according to best BLAST hits or phylogenetic tree; typical habitat of this 'donor' organism, with 'M' standing for mesophilic (optimum growth temperature between 15°C and 45°C), 'T' for thermophilic (OGT 45-80°C), 'HT' for hyperthermophilic (OGT > 80°C), and 'TA' for thermoacidophilic; systematic position of this 'donor' organism with domain, phylum, and order.
