  1. aNo unique digestion pattern was detected
  2. bIt denotes unique in terms of fragment length (nucleotides), order and number
  3. cIn the cases of C. acetobutylicum, C. beijerinckii, C. botulinum and C. sporogenes, no unique pattern could be detected and have been discussed separately. The different groups are based on their phylogenetic relationship (Figure 1). It is further assumed here that C. beijerinckii is a part of population comprised of C. acetobutylicum and similarly C. sporogenes is a part of C. botulinum.
