  1. Hunter Gaston Diversity Index (HGDI) was used to measure the variation of multiple locus variable-number tandem repeat locus, which ranges from 0.0 (no diversity) to 1.0 (complete diversity); Confidence Interval is Precision of the Diversity Index and expressed as 95% upper and lower boundaries; K: Number of different repeats present at this locus in this sample set; Max (pi): Fraction of samples that have the most frequent repeat number in this locus (ranging from 0.0 to 1.0); n: The number of the isolates according to the considered locus
