Fig. 4

Minimum spanning tree analysis of 203 L. fermentum isolates based on allelic profiles of 11 gene fragments and according to food-type origin. Each circle represents the sequence type, the size of the circle is proportional to the number of isolates within any given ST. The strength of links are: black line = strong relationship; grey line = intermediate relationship; dotted line = weak relationship. STs belonging to the same clonal complex, are indicated by the surrounding shading. Gray line was drawn as boundaries of each group
