Relatedness of Candida parapsilosis clinical isolates. Dendrogram generated from SABs computed for pairwise comparisons of the 14 C. parapsilosis test isolates and the reference strain J940043 fingerprinted with Cp3-13. Note that with the exception of the six identical outbreak isolates, none of the dendrogram nodes exceed an SAB value of 0.7 for the other test isolates.
