Figures S1-S10 represent 10 ML trees each consisting of a total of 30 taxa (10 Archaea, 10 Bacteria, and 10 Eukarya) from the 84-10-10 dataset of Spang et al. (A. Spang, J. H. Saw, S. L. Jørgensen et al., “Complex archaea that bridge the gap between prokaryotes and eukaryotes,” Nature, vol. 521, no. 7551, pp. 173–179, 2015). The trees test whether over-representation of archaeal taxa in (A. Spang, J. H. Saw, S. L. Jørgensen et al., “Complex archaea that bridge the gap between prokaryotes and eukaryotes,” Nature, vol. 521, no. 7551, pp. 173–179, 2015) could have favored the AAS.
