Phylogenetic trees for all members of the phylum Actinobacteria in VetBact (27 species/subspecies) have now been included. The only group of bacteria for which there are no trees available in VetBact is the class Gammaproteobacteria, which also is the biggest class with 61 members included in VetBact.
The phylogenetic trees in VetBact are based on prealigned 16S rRNA gene sequences retrieved from RDP (Ribosomal Database Project). The trees have been constructed on line by using the computer program “Tree Builder” at the website of RDP. The images of the trees were further revised by using the GNU Image Manipulation Program – GIMP.
