From: Candidatus Phytoplasma phoenicium’ associated with almond witches’-broom disease: from draft genome to genetic diversity among strain populations

Fig. 1

Phylogenetic tree inferred from ‘Ca. P. phoenicium’ strain nucleotide sequences of gene 16S rRNA. Minimum evolution analysis was carried out using the neighbor-joining method and bootstrap replicated 1,000 times. List of ‘Ca. P. phoenicium’ strains is reported in Table 1. ‘Ca. P. phoenicium’ strains identified in almond, peach and nectarine are written in bold red, blue and green, respectively. Names of other phytoplasmas included in the phylogenetic analysis are presented on the tree image. The GenBank accession number of each sequence is given in parenthesis. Phytoplasmas, among those whose genome was partially or fully sequenced, are indicated in bold characters: PoiBI JR1, Poinsettia branch-inducing phytoplasma strain JR1; ICP MA1, Italian clover phyllody phytoplasma strain MA1; MY MW1, Milkweed yellows phytoplasma strain MW1; VacWB VAC, Vaccinium witches’-broom phytoplasma strain VAC; PnWB NTU2011, Peanut witches’-broom phytoplasma strain NTU2011; OY-M, Onion yellows phytoplasma strain OY-M; AYWB, Aster yellows witches’-broom phytoplasma strain AYWB; WBD, Wheat blue dwarf phytoplasma; SLY NZSb11, Strawberry lethal yellows phytoplasma strain NZSb11
