Comparative genomics and evolutionary analysis of C. militaris. Scatter plots of Blast score ratio (BSR) analysis of (a) C. militaris (CCM), M. anisopliae (MAA) and M. acridium (MAC) genomes, and (b) CCM, MAA and F. graminearum (FG) genomes. The numbers in red at the lower left corners are the percentages of C. militaris species-specific sequences and the numbers at the upper left or lower right are the percentages of lineage-specific genes between pairs of genomes. (c) A maximum likelihood phylogenomic tree constructed using the Dayhoff amino acid substitution model showing the evolutionary relationship of C. militaris with different fungal species. Three insect pathogens are highlighted by the green shading. (d) Distribution of paralogous gene numbers with different levels of nucleotide similarity in C. militaris and other fungi. MY, million years.
