Comparison of the 16s rRNA gene and the coaE gene within the Bacillus lineage, for a the gene identity of 16s rRNA or coaE vs. the average AAI and b tree reconstructed from 16s rRNA or coaE gene in comparison with the tree reconstructed from AAI. As the least sequence-conserved marker gene within the Bacillus lineage, coaE correlates well with the AAI in percent identities and is able to reconstruct the tree resembling that reconstructed from AAI
