UPGMA tree constructed by numerical analysis of spoligotyping data using the Taxotron software (P.A.D. Grimont, Taxolab, Institut Pasteur, Paris). Remarkable genotypes are shown in bold at the extreme right of the picture (ST n°). The size of the characters is proportional to the frequency of genotypes. Dotted lines and some families (Haarlem1 and 3 as H1 and H3 and the newly "LAM7-TUR" family) are shown at the left of the dendrogram. Unique patterns are designated either as "orphan" or with their ST n° if already described in the SpolDB4 database.
