Phylogenetic tree of 16S rDNA of Clostridium perfringens and Framework sequences. A neighbor - joining analysis with Jukes-Cantor correction and bootstrap support was performed on the rrs sequences of C. perfringens - 46 (shown in red, except those used as framework sequences) along with 56 of phylogenetic framework (Figure 1). Bootstrap values are given at nodes. Sequences marked by filled square are the ones considered as framework in the study whereas type strains are indicated by 'T' as superscript. Values in parentheses are accession numbers (RDP and NCBI) (http://rdp.cme.msu.edu/ and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/). Note: Out of a total of 92 C. perfringens rrs sequences, 46 have been presented here to achieve clarity of presentation. The rest 46 rrs sequences have been presented in Figure 7.
