[…] es without a high-quality match resulting in 613 bacterial species in our final data set that were used for subsequent analyses. For temperature annotations, we matched this set of 613 species to the ProTraits database using custom scripts, and restricted our analysis to species with temperature annotations exceeding a precision of 0.9 (equivalent to a FDR < 0.1) ().
