MSTs based on allelic profiles. Coloring depends on geographical origin of isolates: Asia (red), South America (green), and Europe (blue). Size of circles represents number of isolates with the corresponding ST or pST. Circles surrounded by a light green circle were (sub-) group founders. A Population snapshot based on MLST profiles. STs that differ in one allele are connected via black lines. B FullMST based on MLST profiles. The number of different alleles is indicated in the case of SLVs, DLVs and TLVs. 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. C FullMST based on AA-MLST profiles. The number of different alleles is indicated in the case of DLVs and TLVs all other pSTs are SLVs.
