Clustering of eight <i>E. faecium</i> STs from the feces of ICU dogs.

<p>eBURST clustering of eight <i>E. faecium</i> multi-locus sequence types (STs) from this study (indicated by solid line circles) in relation to one representative of 600 STs from MLST database. Each ST is represented as a node, and lines connect single locus variants. Dotted line circles represent STs from A,B: clinical infections, hospital outbreaks; C: hospital and community surveys, environment, and animals (dog, cat, chicken, mouse, ostrich). ICU = intensive care unit.</p>
