Figure. The consensus phylogenetic tree of recA DNA sequences of Burkholderia cepacia complex strains, representative of each genomovar, and of the B. cenocepacia isolate (GenBank accession no. AJ786367) was constructed with the PHYLIP package (version 3.6) (http://evolution.genetics.washington.edu/phylip.html). Only recA DNA sequences of reference B. cenocepacia strains (genomovar III, lineage IIIB) are included in the tree (4,13). Alignments were performed with the Clustal W program. Genetic distance is indicated on the scale, and bootstrap analysis for nodes values >70% are shown. GenBank accession numbers of the recA DNA sequences are shown for each reference strains.
