Shared types (SIT) followed by an asterisk indicate “newly created” shared types ( 𝑛 = 4 ) due to 2 or more strains belonging to an identical new pattern within this study (SIT3079, SIT3080), or a unique strain from this study matching with another orphan in the database (SIT3089 matched an orphan from Peru; SIT3090 matched an orphan from USA). Note that SIT3080 was created by 2 strains belonging to an identical pattern within this study that also matched an orphan from Saudi Arabia.
Clade designations are according to SITVIT2 database. Unk: unknown patterns within major clades described in SITVIT2.
Clustered versus unique patterns; clustered strains correspond to a similar spoligotype pattern shared by 2 or more strains “within this study”; as opposed to unique strains harboring a spoligotype pattern that does not match with another strain from this study. Unique strains matching a preexisting pattern in the SITVIT2 database are classified as SITs, whereas in case of no match, they are designated as “orphan” (see Table 1).
