Figure 3.

Lack of consistent patterns of descent among SNP markers from Bangladeshi E. histolyticaisolates suggests they segregate independently. Consensus phylogeny inferred from 100 bootstrap replicates of polymorphic SNP markers, constructed using the MEGA 5 program and the Maximum Likelihood method based on the Tamura-Nei model and using the sequences shown in Additional file 1: Table 8 [42]. Branches produced in fewer than 50% of the bootstrap phylogenies were collapsed. Sequences from stool have the suffix s; culture c; monthly survey stools begin with MS or CMS, diarrheal DS or CDS, amebic liver abscess samples RUF.
