From: Whole-genome sequences of multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli in South-Kivu Province, Democratic Republic of Congo: characterization of phylogenomic changes, virulence and resistance genes

Fig. 4

Virulence genes identified both in DRC ESBL-producing ExPEC (in dark grey for E. coli isolated from bloodstream, and in black for those isolated from urine samples), and in ExPEC from GenBank (in light grey). A gene was deemed present if it matched the reference sequence (minimal identity match of 95% with a minimal coverage of 80% of the gene sequence). * Virulence factor genes not extensively characterized in ExPEC as per previous reports [27,28,29], but described and/or available in the Virulence Finder database
