Supplemental Table: SpolDB4 listing of all STs, binary description, octal description, distribution per country of isolation and/or of origin when available, clade/subclade label. Country names were chosen according to the ISO3166-three-letter format. "U" = unknown. Clade/subclade label using spoligotyping only should be taken as presumptive or indicative of a likely clade/subclade belonging but may in some case be misleading and requires in most cases further investigations to confirm the identity of a given isolate. In some instances, mixed patterns (unrecognized) did not unambiguously allow spoligotyping classification, hence an ambiguous final label in this table.
