Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Rickettsia vini n. sp. isolated from the tick Ixodes arboricola (Czech Republic). A total of 2979 unambiguously aligned nucleotide sites of the rickettsial genes gltA, ompA, ompB, and htrA were concatenated and subjected to analysis by the Maximum Likelihood method. The bootstrap values obtained by 1000 replicates are shown at the nodes. The tree is drawn to scale; scale-bar indicates nucleotide substitutions (%) per site. The GenBank accession numbers of the sequences included in this analysis are shown in Additional files 1, 2, 3 and 4
