  • a Mean percent nucleotide difference ± standard error.

  • b The mean divergences within the groups (shown in the same order as in the comparison column) are based on all pairwise comparisons of strains within the group.

  • c The mean divergences between groups are based on all pairwise comparisons of strains from different groups.
