Additional file 3: Figure S1:

Population snapshot based on MLST profiles of pubMLST dataset. Coloring depends on geographical origin of isolates: Asia (red), South America (light green), North America (dark green), Africa (yellow) and Europe (blue). Size of circles represents number of isolates with the corresponding ST. STs that differ in one allele are connected via black lines.

FullMST based on MLST profiles of pubMLST dataset. Coloring depends on geographical origin of isolates: Asia (red), South America (light green), North America (dark green), Africa (yellow) and Europe (blue). Size of circles represents number of isolates with the corresponding ST. All connections were drawn. SLVs are connected via black, DLVs via dark grey, TLVs via grey and all connection with a higher level via light grey lines.

FullMST based on AA-MLST profiles of pubMLST dataset. Coloring depends on geographical origin of isolates: Asia (red), South America (light green), North America (dark green), Africa (yellow) and Europe (blue). Size of circles represents number of isolates with the corresponding pST. All connections were drawn. SLVs are connected via black, DLVs via dark grey and TLVs via grey lines.
