A, B, C, and D are M. ulcerans designated genotypes, and E is M. marinum DL. MMDL is M. marinum DL, MPS is M. pseudoshottsii and MLF is M. liflandii. ND, not done, Gh, Ghana. Work by Ablordey et al. [14] used 9 VNTR markers, excluding ST1 and MIRU1, but for the purpose of this review, only results for Loci 6 and 19 are shown.
