Additional file 13: of Nested coevolutionary networks shape the ecological relationships of ticks, hosts, and the Lyme disease bacteria of the Borrelia burgdorferi (s.l.) complex

The phylogenetic tree for the concatenated multilocus sequence typing (MLST) sequences of B. burgdorferi (BBG) as recorded on the most represented ticks in the MLST dataset. The tip of each branch is labelled with the MLST classification. Each blue dot indicates that it was found in the reference tick. The size of the dot is proportional to the number of times that the specific MLST type was recorded on that tick. (PDF 272 kb)
