Phylogenetic tree of Lactococcus garvieae (M12− KM209202) from the present study (*) and other Lactococcus spp. based on 16S rRNA gene sequences. Neighbor-joining tree was constructed using MEGA 6 maximum composite likelihood method and 1000 bootstrap number with complete deletion. Percentages ≥50% are shown at the internal nodes. Bacillus subtilis was used as an outgroup.
