A maximum likelihood phylogentic tree showing the relation between strains of Mycobacterium avium (IS901 gene). Phylogenetic analysis was performed using Mega6. The analysis was carried out based on IS901 nucleotide sequences. Analysis showed that DNA sequences of M. avium strains obtained in this study were closely related to each other and to M. avium strain RCAD0278. The starins of M. avium RCAD0278, M. avium cervine strain JD/88, M. avium ORF1 and M. avium huminsiuss from human were grouped in separate clusters. a Significant evolutionary divergence within the group, b significant evolutionary divergence between M. avium isolated in this study and isolates of M. avium retrieved from Genbank. c Evolutionary divergence within and between the groups was not significant
