Phylogeny of Entamoeba Species using Riboprinting

riboprinting based tree

The fragment comigration data derived from riboprint patterns were converted into estimated genetic distances by the method of Nei and Li and the tree constructed by the Fitch-Margoliash method (panel A). The total tree standard deviation for the 4-nucleated cyst producing species is 10.9%, one third of which is due to E. moshkovskii Ribodeme 4. Panel B shows a tree derived from the fragment comigration data using parsimony (MacClade software).
