Minimum spanning tree. It was constructed using the 1-Jaccard index and combining numerical analysis based on both spoligotyping and VNTR results. Options were chosen on BioNumerics software to allow the construction of hypothetical genotypes (which have not been censused in French Guiana), materialised on the tree as white circles. The four major branches are called A, B, C and D. Branch D is homogeneously constituted by LAM genotypes. Branch A contains genotypes from T, Haarlem, Beijing, LAM and X families; branch B contains genotypes from Haarlem, T, S and X families; branch C shows genotypes from Haarlem, EAI, LAM, likely Haarlem and M. africanum.
