Multilocus variable-number tandem repeat analysis types (MT) of 260 Bordetella pertussis isolates collected in Denmark during 1949–2010. A minimum spanning tree based on the categorical clustering of MTs. Each MT is represented by a circle, and the Dutch type name (15) is indicated. MTs connected by heavy short lines, thinner lines, dashed lines, and spotted lines designate 1, 2, 3, and 4 loci differences, respectively. *New MTs detected in this study. Circle size indicates the number of isolate

Figure 1. . . Multilocus variable-number tandem repeat analysis types (MT) of 260 Bordetella pertussis isolates collected in Denmark during 1949–2010. A minimum spanning tree based on the categorical clustering of MTs. Each MT is represented by a circle, and the Dutch type name (15) is indicated. MTs connected by heavy short lines, thinner lines, dashed lines, and spotted lines designate 1, 2, 3, and 4 loci differences, respectively. *New MTs detected in this study. Circle size indicates the number of isolates with the particular MT. Colors indicate the time period of isolation: green, period 1 (1961 and earlier); red, period 2 (1962–1996); purple, period 3 (1997 forward).
