A Novel High-Resolution Single Locus Sequence Typing Scheme for Mixed Populations of Propionibacterium acnes In Vivo

Figure 1

The SLST scheme discriminates the phylogenetic clusters of P. acnes.

Minimum Evolution phylogenetic tree based on 86 complete and draft P. acnes genomes, generated in MEGA v. 5.22 and based on a 1,964,522-bp concatemer of core sequences. Only bootstrap values of 100% are shown. The leftmost column depicts the identified SLST type. Type designations according to MLST9 and MLST8 schemes and ribotyping are also given, in addition to the traditional type assignments based on recA and tly sequence analysis. * indicates unknown types.
