Predicting Phenotype and Emerging Strains among Chlamydia trachomatis Infections
Figure 5. SplitsTree obtained by using concatenated sequences of the 7 loci for the 87 isolates. Cluster I, noninvasive, nonprevalent Chlamydia trachomatis strains (gold) with trachoma Subcluster I (red); cluster II, invasive lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) isolates (purple); and cluster III, noninvasive globally prevalent sexually transmitted infection (STI) strains (blue). Isolates colored green represent putative recombinant strains. Scale bar indicates number of substitutions per site.
