eBURST generated population snapshot of CA-MRSA clones isolated in Western Australia (http://www.mlst.net/ webcite). Each sequence types (STs) is represented by a black dot. The ancestral ST of a clonal complex is represented by a blue dot. The size of the dot reflects the number of WA CA-MRSA clones with this ST. STs that diverge at no more than one of the seven MLST loci belong to the same clonal complex. Double locus variants (DLVs) are included if the linking single locus variant (SLV) was present in the MLST database. SLVs and DLVs of a sequence type are represented by pink and blue line respectively. Purple lines represent overlapping pink and blue lines.
