Method Researchers examined proteomes from 5 eukaryotic species, 16 archaeal species and 67 bacterial species. They evaluated results using the set of proteins classified in the COG (Clusters of Orthologous Groups of proteins) database and the set of genomic proteins included in the Pfam database of functional/structural domain alignments verified by human intervention (Pfam-A).
