*For the 23 loci, data are given as repeat copy number. NA indicates no amplification (failures), likely because of mutations in the priming sites or incomplete sequencing of VNTR regions and does not necessarily indicate absence of a VNTR region. VNTR data for all strains except THSK2 and Dubai 7 from Hornstra et al. 2009 (10). VNTR, variable-number tandem repeat; UNK, unknown.
