Figure 1. Phylogenetic relationships of Candida auris and C. haemulonii strains isolated in Tel Aviv, Israel, compared with reference strains. Phylogenetic trees were generated from internal transcribed spacer (A) and D1/D2 domain of the ribosomal DNA large subunit sequences (B). The percentage of replicate trees in which the associated taxa clustered together in the bootstrap test (500 replicates) is shown next to each branch. Bold indicates strains from Tel Aviv. GenBank accession numbers are provided in parentheses. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
