[…] The 16S rRNA gene sequences of each purified strain were identified using BLASTn []. The alignment of the sequences was used for analysis under the neighbor-joining method [] fitting to the distances of Jukes-Cantor model []. Phylogenetic tree was constructed using PHYLIP software v3.696 [J. Q. Felsenstein, PHYLIP—phylogeny inference package, version 3.696] ( Bacillus anthracis strain ATCC 14578 and E. coli strain U5/41 were used as the outgroups in the cladogram for ADL15 and ADL36, respectively. The evolutionary distance along with the robustness of the inferred trees was calculated and evaluated by neighbor-joining method by 1000 bootstraps replicates []. The constructed tree was viewed using the TreeView v3.0 software. […]
