Figure 3. Neighbor-joining tree of a 361-bp region of unique heat-shock protein 65 gene sequences of 138 clinical isolates and reference strains of the Mycobacterium chelonae-abscessus complex. Branch support is recorded at nodes as a percentage of 1,000 bootstrap iterations. Clinical isolates are labeled by the identification, followed by the sequevar group and the number of isolates. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
