Sequencing and Staphylococci Identification
Figure A1. Unrooted neighbor-joining tree based on partial RNA polymerase B (rpoB) gene sequences showing the phylogenetic relationship among all validly described species and subspecies of the genus Staphylococcus and further staphylococcal culture collection strains (n = 82). The scale bar indicates the evolutionary distance between sequences determined by measuring the lengths of the horizontal lines connecting 2 organisms.
