Figure 2. Phylogenetic tree sequences of Echinococcus granulosus (EG) from Egyptian camel and human and their relationship with reference sequences of other genotype G6 strain retrieved from GenBank. The tree analysis was obtained from partial sequence (276bp) from mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase 1 gene. All isolates cluster with sequences belonging to the camel G6 genotype (Accession No. KF815488). A sequence aligned by Clustal W method and the tree was built by using MEGA5 software. Genetic distance is indicated below the tree
