Bacillus anthracis phylogenetic tree The genotype of each strain for the polymorphic minisatellites is given (size estimates for each allele are given in Table 3). "0" indicates a failure of the PCR amplification. This is most often associated with B. cereus strains, and probably reflects in these cases sequence divergence in the flanking sequence. The phylogenetic tree was produced using the Neighbor-Joining method as available on-line at http://www.infobiogen.fr. webcite
