a Whenever possible, strains originating from different continents were selected to improve the representivity of the sample. PCR results are recorded as positive (+) or negative (-) with primer pairs designed to detect the presence of Insertion Sequences (ISMmy2 and ISMmy3), Integrative Conjugative Elements (traG) or the insertion of an integrative conjugative element at a specific location (VIP). Non specific PCR primers corresponding to 16SrDNA genes were used as positive amplification controls.

b These strains were formerly identified as M. mycoides subsp. mycoides LC
