Molecular phylogeny of the species Escherichia coli using the E. coli reference (ECOR) collection strains has been hampered by (1) the absence of rooting in the commonly used phenogram obtained from multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) data and (2) the existence of recombination events between strains that scramble phylogenetic trees reconstructed from the nucleotide sequences of genes. We attempted to determine the phylogeny for E. coli based on the ECOR strain data by extracting from… CONTINUE READING
