Code Descriptions # Sequences
T Three Phylogenetic Domains/Two Organelles 8513
3 Three Phylogenetic Domains 7180
A Archaea 264
B (eu)Bacteria 5859
C Chloroplasts 182
E Eucarya 1054
M Mitochondria 1160

The three phylogenetic domains are defined in (Woese, C.R., Kandler, O., & Wheelis, M.L. (1990) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 87 4576-4579): Archaea, (eu)Bacteria, and Eucarya (nuclear).
