Table 1 Classification of the 320 composite families found in Haloarchaea according to their component (domain) origins. Pie charts correspond to the distribution of COG functional annotations of the composite families for each class (blue: information storage and processing, red: metabolism, white: poorly characterized, green: cellular processes and signaling)

From: Hundreds of novel composite genes and chimeric genes with bacterial origins contributed to haloarchaeal evolution
