A molecular phylogeny of enteric bacteria and implications for a bacterial species concept

Wertz, J E; Goldstone, C; Gordon, David; Riley, Margaret A

Description

A molecular phylogeny for seven taxa of enteric bacteria (Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter cloacae, Escherichia coli, Hafnia alvei, Klebsiella oxytoca, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Serratia plymuthica) was made from multiple isolates per taxa taken from a collection of environmental enteric bacteria. Sequences from five housekeeping genes (gapA, groEL, gyrA, ompA, and pgi) and the 16s rRNA gene were used to infer individual gene trees and were concatenated to infer a composite molecular...[Show more]
