We determined almost complete small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequences of 50 reference strains belonging to the genera Corynebacterium, Rhodococcus, and Gordona and compared these sequences with previously published sequences. Three phylogenetic methods (the neighbor-joining, maximum-likelihood, and maximum-parsimony methods), as well as a bootstrap analysis, were used to assess the robustness of each topology which we obtained. The results of comparative phylogenetic analyses confirmed that the… CONTINUE READING
