Genetic relationship of gltA sequences of Rickettsia spp. identified in the present study (starred) with those of Rickettsia spp. available on GenBank. The sequence data (375 bp) were analysed using Neighbour Joining (NJ), Maximum Likelihood (ML) and Bayesian Inference (BI) methods. There was a concordance among the topology of the BI, ML and NJ trees (not shown) and only NJ tree is presented here. Nodal support is given as a posterior probability of BI and bootstrap values for NJ and ML. The tree was rooted using Rickettsia bellii as outgroup. The scale-bar indicates the number of inferred substitutions per site
