  • a Combination of MIRU-VNTR (with repeat number at each locus) producing the most unambiguous definition of each lineage. Numbers stand for MIRU (e.g., 39-3 indicates 3 copies of MIRU-39); letters stand for ETR (e.g., A-4 indicates 4 copies of ETR-A).

  • b Expressed as the number of isolates with concordant results/total number of isolates (percent).
