Phylogenetic analysis of 959 of 1605 core genes (cgMLST) genes in capsule null Neisseria meningitidis isolates (n = 93) belonging to clonal complexes (cc) 53 (n = 49), cc198 (n = 13), cc192 (n = 13), cc1136 (n = 6), cc41/44 (n = 8), cc1117 (n = 3) and cc213 (n = 1). Individual cgMLST phylogenies are also illustrated for cc53 and cc192. Clusters are highlighted in grey and the invasive South African isolates are represented by red nodes. Isolates 41860 and 41961 were from recurrent invasive disease episodes in the same patient. The scale bars represent the number of variant loci. All genomes are available on the website
