Outbreak Analysis Using 1928 - Enterococcus faecium

cgMLST UPGMA-clustering of a Enterococcus faecium outbreak using the 1928 platform

The tree is created using UPGMA and distances shown are computed based on pairwise allelic differences (hamming distance). Missing genes are not included in the count.
