[…] MLST was performed as described previously []. The DNA sequences were analyzed using Bionumerics software (Applied-Maths, Sint-Martens-Laten, Belgium) and the alleles and sequence types were assigned according to the pneumococcal MLST database available at The goeBURST algorithm [] implemented in the PHYLOViZ software [] was used to establish relationships between STs. Clonal complexes were defined at the single-locus-variant (SLV) and double-locus-variant (DLV) levels. […]
