Species relationships and genome characteristics. A cladogram of investigated species with genome sizes and numbers of annotated protein-encoding genes. Strains follow species names. Numbered labels on the cladogram indicate the arbitrary levels and calculated number of ortholog clusters observed in descendants of the node. For example, level 1 contains ortholog clusters with members in all Apicomplexa (880 ortholog clusters). Level 5 contains ortholog clusters specific to Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium knowlesi, and Plasmodium vivax and not detected in the other apicomplexan species in the cladogram (88 ortholog groups). Protein # indicates the number of protein-encoding genes. Adapted from DeBarry and Kissinger, 2011 [18]
