Dendrogram of normalized CGH results. S. suis strains are listed in the first column, serotype and phenotype (muramidase released protein (MRP) and extracellular factor (EF) expression) in the second column. MLST sequence type (ST) and clonal complex (CC) are listed in the last column. Red color indicates probes that are present in more copies than in P1/7, whereas green color indicates probes that are present in P1/7, and absent in the test strain. Asterisks indicate statistically significant knots. Solid boxed isolates were shown to be virulent or weakly virulent in experimental infections; dotted boxed isolates were shown to be avirulent or very weakly virulent in experimental infections; striped - dotted boxed isolates were isolates from human patients. humanindicates an isolate that was shown to be avirulent in experimental infection, but was isolated from a human patient.
