  1. The marker name contains all the numbers necessary to characterize the marker in reference to a given sequenced genome (reference strain, R6). For example, in “ms15_507bp_45bp_7U”, - ms means minisatellite, - 507 bp is the size of the amplification product of this marker; - 45 bp is the size of the repeat unit, - 7 is the number of repeats. Markers used by authors are noticed by a cross (+), authors seven Markers set are noticed as following: (A) this paper, (B) Pichon’s and (C) Elberse’s. The MLST/MLVA congruence in percent by author is indicated at the bottom of the table.
  2. * DI: diversity index. † CI: confidence interval.
