Figure 4. Genetic relationship of multilocus sequence typing (MLST) genotypes among 94 isolates of Cryptococcus neoformans serotype A (88 strains from Litvintseva et al. ) and 6 representative Chinese strains) visualized by the neighbor-joining dendrogram. Numbers on each branch indicate the bootstrap values >50%, based on 500 replicates. Vertical lines represent strains with identical genotypes. Arrows indicate MLST results for Chinese strains.
