The numbers represent the allelic identifier for the individual CRISPR-MVLST markers. The combination of four specific alleles defines a given HST. The frequency is the number of times a particular TST was observed among the 86 S. Typhimurium isolates analyzed in the first study and does not include the frequency of TSTs that were seen in the outbreak study. All TSTs identified here were new and not seen in previous studies. aSome CRISPR2 alleles required more than two sequencing primers to cover the whole length of the array. Alleles that required three primers are noted with * and the two isolates that required seven primers to sequence CRISPR2 are noted with **. The position of these primers is shown in Additional file 1.
