TaxViz displays the distribution of domains across the major taxonomic kingdoms, and organisms within each kingdom.
Each node represents the features of a single taxonomic group, or organism. The nodes are arranged hierarchically in concentric rings. The parent taxon, located in the centre, leads recursively outwards towards its children. The size of the circle indicates the mean number of domains found per organism in a given taxonomic group. For individual organisms, it gives the actual number of domains.

Trees by TreeVector
A presence/absence matrix is generated using protein domain architecture data for all genomes in SUPERFAMILY. The PAUP software is used to produce a single, large tree topology using heuristic parsimony methods. Genome combinations, or specific clades, can be displayed as if individual trees had been produced. However, this data is extracted from the single large tree. This produces a higher quality topology than if the trees had been produced on their own, and allows the trees to be displayed instantly.
