  1. NB: For convenience strain codes used in text included only third part of full strain code (e.g., S086). AP, Andhra Pradesh; TN, Tamil Nadu; WC-west coast; EC, east coast.
  2. Indian strains were grouped into subsets based on the 18S rDNA size obtained by PCR amplification with MA1-MA2 primers.
