Figure 1 from Coughlan et al 2017: Main: A neighbor-Net network of the concatenated sequences totalling 2,902 sites of four housekeeping genes for 102 Viannia based on uncorrected p-distances. The genes were glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGD), mannose phosphate isomerase (MPI) and isocitrate dehydrogenase (ICD). Black stars indicate isolates whose aneuploidy and copy number variants were examined. The L. guyanensis and L. naiffi genomes studied herein are highlighted in orange. Upper inset: The reference genomes of the L. braziliensis control is in the L. braziliensis complex (same node whose text is marked in red)as well as the also annotated L. peruviana PAB-4377 . Lower inset: L. guyanensis and L. naiffi complexes. Nodes with bold text represent samples examined for CNVs. The scale bar indicates the number of substitutions per site.
