Phylogenetic tree based on 16S rDNA sequence information position of A. albertensis strain DSM 14366T (type strain = T) relative to other type and non-type strains within the acidithiobacilli. The strains and their corresponding GenBank accession numbers for 16S rRNA genes are: A. albertensis DSM 14366T, NR_028982; A. albertensis BY0501, FJ032185; A. albertensis BY0503, FJ032186; A. albertensis BY0505, FJ032187; A. albertensis BY0506, GQ254658; A. albertensis JYC, FJ172635; A. thiooxidans ATCC 19377T, Y11596; A. thiooxidans BAD2, KC902821; A. thiooxidans G8, KC902819; A. thiooxidans NBRC13701, AY830902, AMD uncultured clone c7, JX989232; A. ferrooxidans ATCC 23270T, NR_074193; A. ferrivorans NO-37, NR_114620; A. ferridurans ATCC 33020 T, NR_117036; A. caldus ATCC 51756 T, CP005986. The tree was inferred using the Neighbor-Joining method [51]. The optimal tree with the sum of branch length = 0.08720008 is shown. The percentage of replicate trees in which the associated taxa clustered together in the bootstrap test (1000 replicates) are shown next to the branches. The tree is drawn to scale, with branch lengths in the same units as those of the evolutionary distances used to infer the phylogenetic tree. The evolutionary distances were computed using the Maximum Composite Likelihood method [52] and are in the units of the number of base substitutions per site. The analysis involved 34nucleotide sequences. There were a total of 1314 positions in the final dataset. Evolutionary analyses were conducted in MEGA6 [53]
