  1. Table Top - The 25-loci MLVA cluster group with its allele coding data as defined by Lista et al. [17]. Bottom - SNR alleles are displayed as fragment sizes (base pairs) obtained through capillary electrophoresis. Stratilo's locus nomenclature was used throughout [23]. For results obtained with the KEN-MTD, Kenefic's reference codes are also reported [24]. Alleles differing from those of the most common subgenotype, SGT-1, are underlined and highlighted in bold.
