New phylogenetic trees in VetBact

25_clostridium_ver3 So far only few phylogenetic trees have been included on the bacterial pages of VetBact. However, within a few months we hope to increase the number of trees significantly. We have started to constuct trees for the genus Clostridium and a phylogenetic tree can now be found on all clostridia pages of VetBact. The trees 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.
