Figure 3. Neighbor-joining phenogram of allelic identities in 39 multilocus sequence typing (MLST) sequence types from serogroup X Neisseria meningitidis. Numbers at nodes are the percentages of 1,000 bootstrap replicates in which these nodes appeared. Only nodes with percentages >50% were included. The two boxes indicate clonal groupings that were detected by MLST or pulsed-field gel electrophoresis.
