Autochthonous and Dormant Cryptococcus gattii Infections in Europe
Figure. . . Maximum-likelihood phylogenetic analysis based on 10-loci multilocus sequence type data of Cryptococcus gattii isolates (condensed). Phylogenetic relatedness of 150 STs representing the 291 C. gattii isolates, calculated by using the maximum-likelihood algorithm and rooted by using the 2 C. neoformans reference strains CBS8710 (genotype AFLP1/VNI) and CBS10513 (genotype AFLP2/VNIV). Closely related sequence types were collapsed into 1 branch shown by multiple sequence type numbers. Boldface indicates sequence types that are within a shaded area belong to a specified C. gattii cluster; B, M, PNW, and VIO represent clusters from Brazil; Mediterranean Europe; the US Pacific Northwest outbreak; and the Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, outbreak, respectively. AFLP, amplified fragment length polymorphism; ST, sequence type. Scale bar indicates number of substitutions per site. See for a detailed phylogenetic analysis.
