Phylogenetic tree inferred from concatenated genes. Maximum likelihood tree obtained from a concatenated nucleotide sequence alignment of the orthologous core genes for the 28 Staphylococcus strains and Macrococcus caseolyticus JCSCS5402 (outgroup). The horizontal bar at the base of the figure represents 0.1 substitutions per nucleotide site. The percentages of genes that support the branches of the tree are indicated.
