Genome Evolution of Endomicrobia: From Free-Living Bacteria to Intracellular Symbionts of Termite Gut Flagellates

Many eukaryotes harbor intracellular bacterial symbionts that are believed to confer beneficial traits to their hosts. Several bacterial lineages in the class of Endomicrobia are frequently encountered as intracellular symbionts of termite gut flagellates. They represent a deep-branching lineage in...
