Fig. 2

Neighbour-joining clustering of Toxoplasma gondii strains based on 15 microsatellite markers. Squares indicate type I (ENT), II (ME49) and III (NED) reference strains; red points indicate strains from Fernando de Noronha Island, yellow points indicate strains from São Paulo State; blue points indicate strains from northeast Brazil; arrows indicate the four strains collected in the present study. Strains TgCkBr221, 225, 226, 228 and 230 had 15 identical microsatellite markers and were represented by the TgCkBr221 strain in the tree (see Additional file 1: Table S1 for genotyping details); TgCkBr211, TgCkBr183 and TgCkBr210 were identical to TgCkBr224, TgCkBr184 and TgCkBr212-219, 223, 227 and 229, respectively
