Abstract

Abstract

The phylogeny of bacteria belonging to the genus was investigated by sequencing the whole 16S rRNA gene. The average level of similarity for the three strains examined was high (99.2%), and the similarity level between and sp. strain LL, which represent two different genomic species, was even higher (99.6%). When all of the strains and their phylogenetic neighbors and species were considered, the average similarity level was 98.1%. When complete sequences were used, clustered with the two other strains, while this was not the case when partial sequences were used. The two strains examined exhibited a low similarity level (97.6%) and were not clustered.
