Phylogenetic tree illustrating the sorting of 40 metagenome derived lipase/esterase sequences into the eight known lipase/esterase families [<b>61</b>].

<p>The eight families are color coded and labeled with the respective family name (LipS, LipT) or number (I-VIII). The five subfamilies containing the 11 unassignable metagenome lipase/esterase sequences are shown in white and are labeled with the respective family name (UF1-UF5). For the reference sequences, the full organism name as well as the accession number is given at the respective clade. Metagenome sequences are labeled with their protein name and accession number, respectively.</p>
