The paper by Andam et al. explores the evolutionary history of bacterial tyrosyl-tRNA synthetases. The authors attempt to solve one of the fundamental problems in bacterial phylogenomics: whether the apparently consistent bacterial taxonomy can be created and maintained by biased horizontal gene transfer (HGT) or whether it is necessarily...
