Families & Genera

Corynebacterineae is a suborder of the Actinomycetales and includes most[citation needed] of the acid-fast bacteria. Therewith it is a subgroup of the high GC-content and gram-positive bacteria. Among its subgroup Mycobacteriaceae are the species which cause tuberculosis and leprosy.

Phylogeny[edit]

The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN) [1] and National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)[2] and the phylogeny is based on 16S rRNA-based LTP release 106 by The All-Species Living Tree Project [3]
