Fig. 4

Neighbor-net phylogenetic network showing the relationships among S. aureus strains. The split graph was estimated with SplitsTree4 from p-distances of the spA sequence alignment based on the Jukes–Cantor method. Strains highlighted according to their MLST-based CC’s (Table 1 and Fig. 1), Color code: CC8 (yellow circles), CC15 (green circles), CC1 (purple circles) and CC5 (blue circles). The relations between and within strains are illustrated by weighted splits with different colors representing simultaneously both grouping in the data and evolutionary distances between taxa, highlighting conflicting signals or alternative phylogenetic histories (recombination or gene transfer) in spA molecular evolution. MSSA strains are boxed
