Total 9 clusters -- 23 genotypes 104
  1. 1) They were grouped according to 90% similarity via clustering analysis, using UPGMA.
  2. 2) The TRs copy numbers were arranged in the following order: Bruce 04-06-07-08-09-11-12-16-18-19-21-30-42-43-45-55-Hoof 3. The copy numbers, compared with the major genotypes within a cluster, were indicated by bold letters and were underlined.
  3. 3) The B. abortus isolates showing a major MLVA profile in a farm were selected (one strain/farm).
