  1. Species identification was carried out with KmerFinder (PATRIC) which examined the number of co-occurring k-mers (substrings of k nucleotides in genome sequence data) and MLST was done by PATRIC to assign the strains to clonal lineages. AbbreviationsA: amikacin (AMK), ampicillin (AMP), amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (AMG), cefotaxime (CTX), chloramphenicol (CHL), ciprofloxacin (CIP), erythromycin (ERY), gentamicin (GEN), imipenem (IPM), penicillin G (PEN), tetracycline (TET) and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (SXT)
