  1. Note that most of the patterns carry the 29-34 spacers deletion, and that most of them are unclassified by SpolDB4. "Main country" refers to the country where the highest number of isolates carrying this pattern were found according to SpolDB4 [33]. * indicates the spoligotype proposed as a reference by the Affinity Propagation algorithm. The countries are identified via the ISO3166-1 alpha-3 code. THA = Thailand; GBR = United Kingdom; GNB = Guinea-Bissau; BRA = Brazil; EST = Estonia; MYS = Malaysia; BGD = Bangladesh; GEO = Georgia; MDG = Madagascar; NLD = Netherlands; VNM = Vietnam; USA = United States.
