Data from: Paleozoic diversification of terrestrial chitin-degrading bacterial lineages

Danielle S. Gruen, Joanna M. Wolfe & Gregory P. Fournier
Background: Establishing the divergence times of groups of organisms is a major goal of evolutionary biology. This is especially challenging for microbial lineages, due to the near-absence of preserved physical evidence (diagnostic body fossils or geochemical biomarkers). Horizontal gene transfer (HGT), can serve as a temporal scaffold between microbial groups and other fossil-calibrated clades, potentially improving these estimates. Specifically, HGT to or from organisms with fossil-calibrated age estimates can propagate these constraints to additional groups...
