  1. ^ Distinct sub-lineages present; proposal to use decimal based (i.e. 11.1, 11.2, etc.) system for defined sub-lineages.
  2. To simplify and differentiate between MLST typing and whole genome based typing we propose a lineage nomenclature that is associated with defined clonal complex (cc). The data includes all PubMLST Neisseria database isolates.
