From: Multiple-locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis potentially reveals the existence of two groups of Anaplasma phagocytophilum circulating in cattle in France with different wild reservoirs

Fig. 1

Minimum spanning tree of the 198 A. phagocytophilum database samples according to their host species. Each circle represents a unique MLVA profile. The number of circle partitions corresponds to the number of A. phagocytophilum samples with the same genotype. Circles connected by a shaded background and tick lines differ by a maximum of one of the five VNTR markers, and could be considered as a “clonal complex”. The length of each branch is proportional to the number of differences. Each animal host species is represented by a specific color in the circle
