This alignment, along with the entire LTP alignment for the domain Bacteria, was imported into the ape package (version 2.6-2) of the R environment for statistical computing (Paradis and Strimmer 2004); we then calculated an evolutionary distance matrix for each alignment using Kimura's two-parameter substitution model (Kimura 1980).
