    Abstract
    The taxonomic classification of metabolically versatile Paracoccus spp. has been so far performed using polyphasic approach. The topology of single gene phylogenies, however, has highlighted ambiguous species assignments. In the present study, genome based multi-gene phylogenies and overall genome related index were used for species threshold assessment. Comprehensive phylogenomic analysis of Paracoccus genomes showed concordant clustering of strains across multi-gene marker set phylogenies ; as compared to 16S rDNA phylogeny suggesting robustness of multi gene phylogenies in...
