Single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) haplotype map showing position of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus sequence type 239-III (MRSA ST239-III) isolates, Ohio, USA, 2007–2009, within the global population structure of the MRSA ST239-III clonal group. Circles indicate distinct haplotypes, as defined by using a panel of 43 SNPs (9). Sizes of circles indicate relative frequency of different haplotypes. Arrows indicate haplotype 5 (H5), which includes the Brazilian clone, and haplotype 9 (

Figure 3. . . Single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) haplotype map showing position of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus sequence type 239-III (MRSA ST239-III) isolates, Ohio, USA, 2007–2009, within the global population structure of the MRSA ST239-III clonal group. Circles indicate distinct haplotypes, as defined by using a panel of 43 SNPs (9). Sizes of circles indicate relative frequency of different haplotypes. Arrows indicate haplotype 5 (H5), which includes the Brazilian clone, and haplotype 9 (H9), which includes the 22 MRSA ST239-III isolates from Ohio. Relationships between haplotypes were determined by using maximum-parsimony analysis (9).
