Genetic diversity, infection prevalence, and possible transmission routes of Bartonella spp. in vampire bats

Fig 6

Heatmap of pairwise similarity (%) between the 35 vampire bat–associated Bartonella sequences from this study and the nine Bartonella sequences derived from a subset of positive saliva and fecal samples, calculated with Kimura's 2-parameters distance model.

Sequences with greater than 96% similarity were assumed to be part of the same Bartonella genotype.
