Not surprisingly, given the preponderance of isolates in this order, the largest number of clusters (n = 45) was identified among the Actinomycetales (online Appendix Table 1).
A total of 294 isolates belonged to the order Actinomycetales, with Actinomyces (n = 71), Corynebacterium (n = 59), and Nocardia (n = 52) being the most common genera.
