FIG. 1. From: Assignment of Staphylococcus Isolates to Groups by spa Typing, SmaI Macrorestriction Analysis, and Multilocus Sequence Typing.

Typing results obtained by SmaI macrorestriction analysis, MLST, and spa typing. SmaI macrorestriction patterns analyzed using the Dice coefficient and visualized by the unweighted-pair group method, using average linkages with 1% tolerance and 1% optimization settings. The similarity cutoff of 70% is indicated by a vertical line. Results of clustering analyses are compared on the right. Resulting groups are color coded. Identical colors represent corresponding groups obtained from the different clustering methods. a, excluded from BURP clustering due to insufficient length. b, PFGE groups determined by cluster analysis are numbered from 1 to 16. Suffixes indicate different PFGE patterns as defined by Tenover et al. (37), e.g., 12.1 means PFGE group 12, pattern 1.
