Additional file 8: Figure S7. of Preliminary comparative genomics revealed pathogenic potential and international spread of Staphylococcus argenteus

Phylogenetic relatedness of SAC species based on predicted amino acid sequences of genes for synthesis of capsular polysaccharide. Phylogenetic trees were constructed using the Neighbor-Joining method in order to infer evolutionary history and relatedness for SAC species. The evolutionary distances were computed using the Poisson correction method. For each tree the bar indicates 0.005 substitutions per site. Genes from S. aureus, S. argenteus, and S. schweitzeri are represented by red, green, and blue dots, respectively. For the trees based capH-K, S. aureus strains of serotype 5 and serotype 8 are shaded in light or dark gray, respectively. (PDF 262 kb)
