    ..Phylogenetic analysis suggests that initially TfiTok6A1I diverged from a common ancestor, then Tsp32IR branched out, and finally TaqI and TthHB8I diverged from each other during evolution...

    ..However, codon usage and G+C content for the R-M genes differed markedly from that of other cloned Thermus genes. This suggests that these R-M genes were only recently introduced into the genus Thermus...
