Phylogenetic tree of B. faecium Schefferle 6–10T and all type strains of the genus Brachybacterium, inferred from 1408 aligned characters  of the 16S rRNA sequence under the maximum likelihood criterion [5,6]. The tree was rooted with Dermabacter hominis, another member of the family Dermabacteraceae. The branches are scaled in terms of the expected number of substitutions per site. Numbers above branches are support values from 1000 bootstrap replicates, if larger than 60%. Strains with a genome-sequencing project registered in GOLD  are printed in blue; published genomes in bold.
