Fugett, E. B., D. Schoonmaker-Bopp, N. B. Dumas, J. Corby, and M. Wiedmann. 2006. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis analysis of temporally matched Listeria monocytogenes isolates from human clinical cases, foods, ruminant farms, and urban and natural environments reveals source associated as well as widely distributed PFGE types. J. Clin. Micro. (in preparation)
Supplemental Figure S1. Geospatial and source distributions of PFGE types occurring at least 5 times. Source abbreviations are as follows: H, human; Fd, food; Fm, farm; E, environmental. All foods except those denoted with an asterisk (*) are ready-to-eat. Dates of isolation are given as month/year.
