Dendrogram showing relationships among nine Brachyspira strains, representing six of the seven known species. Analysis was based on concatenated DNA sequences of seven MLST loci . The genome sequences of the strains used in the analysis have either been completed or are currently within a genome sequencing project (*). The tree was constructed using the maximum likelihood method. Bootstrap values (%) are shown for stable nodes. The length of the scale bar is equivalent.
