Table S1 is a Fifteen-loci MIRU-VNTR and spoligotyping profile which providing typing data by the 15 loci MLVA, and spoligotyping of the 311 isolates.

Figure S1 is genotyping of 311 M. tuberculosis isolates with VNTR15-China and Spoligotyping. The clustering was based on the analysis performed using BioNumerics 6.5 to compare these two genotyping methods. From left to right: 1) UPGMA dendrogram generated by VNTR15-China 2) poligotyping patterns 3)the repeat number in each VNTR-loci 4) strain number, and 5) the lineage strain belongs to.
