HierCC equivalents

Salmonella database

  • HC900 & HC2000: HC900 is equivalent to eBG (eBurstGroup) in legacy 7-gene MLST, which is shown to be natural population that is consistent with serovars. Thus we have given HC900 a trivial name as “ceBG” (cgMLST eBurstGroup). We also exploited a further clustering of cgSTs at HC2000 level. salmonellae of different eBG groups (serovars) grouped together at this level.

  • HC2850: HC2850 in Salmonella corresponds to the separation of subspecies and species in the genus.

Yersinia database

  • HC1450: HC1450 in Yersinia corresponds to the separation of species of the genus and the Species Complexes defined in Reuter et al. PNAS.
