Figure 1. Dendogram representing phylogenetic relationships among members of the genus Leptospira. The tree was derived from a 1,295-bp fragment of the 16S rRNA gene and was constructed by the neighbor-joining method. Bootstrap values, expressed as a percentage of 1,000 replications, are given at the branching point. GenBank accession numbers are given in parentheses.
