Figure 1: Neighbour-joining tree based on 16S rDNA sequences, showing the phylogenetic relationship between CNS strains and other related members of the genus Staphylococcus. Bacillus subtilis DSM10T (AJ276351) was used as an out group Bootstrap values (expressed as percentage of 100 replications) greater than 70 % are given at the nodes. Filled circles indicate that corresponding nodes were also recovered in the tree generated with maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood algorithms. Bar 1 % sequence variation..
