High Functional Diversity in Mycobacterium tuberculosis Driven by Genetic Drift and Human Demography

Frequency of Pairwise Genetic Distances Among 108 Strains of the MTBC

Pairwise comparisons of genetic distances between human-adapted strains are indicated in yellow, those between animal-adapted strains in blue, and those between human- and animal-adapted strains in red. For better illustration, the frequencies of genetic distances in the animal-to-animal strain comparisons and the animal-to-human strain comparisons were multiplied by 20 and 3, respectively. However, for the statistical analysis (see main text), the actual frequencies were used.
