Cluster of AT-clones identified within the 124 independent isolates of ourP.aeruginosacollection. Cluster of clones were identified by using the eBURST algorithm performed on 13 SNPs plus the multiallelic fliCa/fliCb gene. The colour code indicates for each genotype the % of isolates associated to CF patients, patients from the intensive care unit (ICU) or other hospital units (OTHERS). Novel clones (not described in other studies) are highlighted by a rectangular box.
