A-C. Phylogenetic trees based on the maximum likelihood method using 16S rRNA gene, MLSA (i.e. ftsZ, gyrB, mreB, pyrH, recA, rpoA and topA; 10,141 bp), and supertree (i.e. aminopeptidase P, alaS, aspS, ftsZ, gltX, gyrB, hisS, ileS, infB, metG, mreB, pntA, pheT, pyrH, recA, rpoA, rpoB, rpsH, signal recognition particle protein, threonyl-tRNA synthetase, topA, valS and 30S ribosomal protein S11; 41,617 bp). Bootstrap percentages after 2000 replications are shown. Because some genomes used in this study are not completely sequenced, for the comparison of 16S rRNA, MLSA and supertree, we used 16 genomes of vibrios. The genes used in MLSA and supertree were found only in these 16 genomes.
