Table 4 Simpson’s diversity indices of Xbal-PFGE and 5-loci MLVA among the five most common phage types

From: Characterization of Salmonella Typhimurium isolates from domestically acquired infections in Finland by phage typing, antimicrobial susceptibility testing, PFGE and MLVA

Phage type DI for Xbal-PFGE (95 % CI) DI for 5-loci MLVA (95 % CI)
DT1 0.394 (0.299-0.488) 0.637 (0.560-0.714)
U277 0.379 (0.170-0.587) 0.759 (0.659-0.860)
FT104 0.389 (0.177-0.601) 0.875 (0.776-0.974)
DT116 0.791 (0.632-0.950) 0.802 (0.632-0.972
DT120 0.891 (0.782-1.0) 0.927 (0.833-1.0)
