Figure 2. Minimum spanning tree of 21 environmental azole-resistant Aspergillus fumigatus (ARAF) isolates, China, 2018 (labeled), and 580 other ARAF and azole-susceptible A. fumigatus isolates. The tree was constructed on the basis of short tandem repeat type for all 9 microsatellite markers. Each circle represents 1 unique short tandem repeat genotype but might include multiple cyp51A variants. All ARAF isolates from Nanjing are located in the upper right clade of the tree, which represents a major clone complex of ARAF strains disseminated worldwide. All 5 TR34/L98H/S297T/F495I and 4 TR46/Y121F/T289A isolates from Hangzhou are located in the lower right clade of the tree, consisting mainly of azole-susceptible A. fumigatus isolates.
