  1. * p < 0.00005 for association between colonisation at baseline and infection with same species (proportion test). Distinct episodes of colonisation and infection were defined as those with a unique combination of patient ID, specimen type, species and multi-locus sequence type. Colonisation episodes are expressed as total detected and number detected at baseline (within first 2 days after ICU admission). Strains were defined on the basis of chromosomal SNVs (≤7 SNVs between isolates). Pt patient, VRE vancomycin-resistant enterococci
