Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) fingerprint of 3 colonies of the novel Cryptococcus neoformans × C. gattii hybrid serotype AB isolate CBS10496 and 4 reference strains. CBS9172 and CBS8710 are C. neoformans var. grubii (AFLP1/VNI) strains; E566 and CBS10510 are C. gattii (AFLP4/VGI) strains. Rectangles indicate AFLP fragments characteristic for AFLP1/VNI or AFLP4/VGI and present in isolate CBS10496.
