Fig. 1

Virulence-associated gene (VAG) profiling of 208 S. suis isolates. Heatmap illustrating the presence and absence of 71 previously published VAGs in 208 isolates. Isolates are annotated (right) by pathotype (pathogenic, possibly opportunistic, commensal). Clustering of the 208 S. suis isolates by VAGs illustrated three clusters (Clusters I-III), two of which (Clusters II and III) suggest associations between VAGs and pathotype. Serotype and clonal complex (CC) distributions in each of the three clades are also denoted
