Table 3 Range of repeats, size of repeats, numbers of alleles and diversity indices (Simpson’s, Hunter-Gaston and Shannon-Wiener) for each VNTR locus used to investigate 56 Clavibacter michiganensis subsp . michiganensis strains

From: Multilocus Variable-Number-Tandem-Repeats Analysis (MLVA) distinguishes a clonal complex of Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensisstrains isolated from recent outbreaks of bacterial wilt and canker in Belgium

  1. Diversity Index (for VNTR data) = A measure of the variation of the number of repeats at each locus. Ranges from 0.0 (no diversity) to 1.0 (complete diversity).
