Phylogeny of 5 Dictyostelid species: constructed from 32 orthologous genes in all species with genome sequence using Entamoeba histolytica as the outgroup. The statistical support for all the nodes is 100%.
By Pauline Schaap & Gernot Gloeckner

The P. pallidum genome was sequenced as a collaboration between the
Leibniz Institute for Age Research, Fritz Lipmann Institute, and the University of Dundee.
