Table 4 Occurrence of MIRU-VNTR alleles and allelic diversity

From: Molecular epidemiology of clinical Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex isolates in South Omo, Southern Ethiopia

  1. The MIRU-VNTR locus in the Mtb genome; # the number of alleles pertains to the frequency with which a distinct repeat unit was identified among the 155 isolates. High discriminant (h > 0.6), moderate discriminant (0.3 < = h < =0.6) and poor discriminant (h < 0.3) [34]. Shaded boxes show alleles used for the 15-loci MIRU-VNTR and the 12-loci MIRU-VNTR methods
