Abstract/Summary Until 1965, microbiologists struggled with simplicity of bacterial morphology and phenotypic characters in an attempt to construct a phylogenetic division for the prokaryotes. Then, it was found that molecular sequences were the source of much evolutionary information. Consequently, the way from phenotypic to genotypic characteristics for evolutionary inference was clear. Ribosomes within biological cells are the sites of protein synthesis. They are composed of a mixture of nucleic acids [ribosomal RiboNucleic Acids (rRNA)] and proteins and have an average size of 70S in bacteria. Because of their role in cell survival, maintenance and reproduction, rRNAs and their genes are described as being evolutionally conserved. Other genes can also be used to infer evolutionary relationships, and phylogenies inferred from all these molecules tend to concur.
