Figure 1: Phylogenetic tree of Anoxybacillus rupeinsis.16S rDNA sequence-based phylogenetic neighbour joining tree showing the phylogenetic relationship of isolated colony relative to the type strains of species in the genera Geobacillus, Anoxybacillus and sequences for the unpublished Anoxybacillus species ‘‘A. beppuensis’’ (identical with isolate) and ‘‘A. bogroviensis’’. B. subtilis is included as outgroup. Bootstrap values (%) from 1,000 replicates are as shown. The tree topology by calculation by the FastML program was similar to the tree shown.
