Figure 2

Comparison of pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and 4-locus multilocus variable number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA-4) profiles for isolates in 4 clonal groups (see text for details). Isolate number with its MLST sequence type (ST) is listed for each isolate on the PFGE profile, with the corresponding isolate number listed for the MLVA-4 profile. Four unrelated isolates are included for comparison: 0875 (ST115), 1869 (ST337), 1839 (ST336), and 1153 (ST117).
