MLVA clustering of the 189 strains of S. agalactiae by the UPGMA method, run in BioNumerics. The names of strains (Strain Id), MLST clonal complex (CC), MLST sequence type (ST), MLST profile, serotype and the origin of strains are shown on the right. A cutoff value of 50% similarity was applied to define MLVA clusters (named MLVA cluster 1 to MLVA cluster 9). The colors used are based on MLVA clusters.
