Minimum evolution tree for ompA. The tree was constructed using the matrix of pairwise differences between the 87 sequences by using the maximum composite likelihood method for estimating genetic distances. Numbers are bootstrap values (1,000 replicates) >70%. Lavender, invasive lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV); gold, noninvasive, nonprevalent sexually transmitted infection (STI) strains; red, trachoma strains; blue, noninvasive, highly prevalent STI strains; green, putative recombinant stains.
