Table 1 Distances between the NUTs and the 'universal tree of life'

From: Search for a 'Tree of Life' in the thicket of the phylogenetic forest

  TOL NUTs NUTs (1:1) Random NUTs
TOL 0    
NUTs 0.604 ± 0.096 0.659 ± 0.076   
NUTs (1:1) 0.554 ± 0.050 0.639 ± 0.065 0.607 ± 0.065  
Random NUTs 0.994 ± 0.011 0.998 ± 0.004 0.999 ± 0.004 0.998 ± 0.005
  1. The table shows the mean split distance ± standard deviation for the three sets of NUTs and the 'universal tree of life' (TOL) [37]. The overlap between the tree of life and the NUTs consisted of 47 species, so the distances were computed after pruning the NUTs to that set of species.
