Fig. 2

Unrooted phylogenetic tree of representative B. anthracis strains derived from chromosomal SNPs. The evolutionary history of B. anthracis strains was inferred from 1,548 non-homoplasious chromosomal SNPs by using the Maximum Likelihood method based on the Tamura-Nei model [22]. The tree is drawn to scale, with branch lengths measured in the number of substitutions per site. Colors indicate canSNP groups A.Br.003/004 (A.Br.V770, green), B.Br.CNEVA (purple) or B.Br.001/002 (yellow), respectively. Bootstrap values (based on 1000 replications) are given as percentages at branch nodes. The right column indicates the country of origin and canSNP group information of representatives (in brackets)
