Genetic Diversity among Clonal Lineages within Escherichia coli O157:H7 Stepwise Evolutionary Model
Figure 1. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of XbaI-digested DNA from GUD+ O157:H7 strains. Strain designation, source and year of isolation are shown at right. This unweighted pair-group method with arithmetic mean dendrogram was generated in BioNumerics software (Applied Maths, St-Martens-Latem, Belgium) by using Die coefficient with a 1.0% lane optimization and 1.0% band position tolerance. The scale above the dendrogram indicates percent similarity.
