Figure 2. Maximum-likelihood phylogram of different variants of Anaplasma phagocytophilum based on the p44ESup1/omp-1n and intergenic region gene sequences created by using TREEFINDER (www.treefinder.de) with default values. The number of substitutions per site over 1,092 total sites is shown under the tree, and bootstrap support for each split (percentage of times recovered) is shown next to each branch of the tree.
