Phylogenetic tree highlighting the position of Corynebacterium jeddahense strain JCBT relative to other type strains within the genus Corynebacterium. GenBank accession numbers are indicated in parentheses. Sequences were aligned using CLUSTALW, and phylogenetic inferences obtained using the maximum-likelihood method in the MEGA software package. Numbers at the nodes are percentages of bootstrap values obtained by repeating the analysis 500 times to generate a majority consensus tree. Mycobacterium avium was used as outgroup. The scale bar represents 1% nucleotide sequence divergence.
