Distribution of plasmid and chromosomal variants of iro and iuc and capsule locus (KL) types amongst K. pneumoniae clones. Rows indicate sequence types (STs, as labelled) that contain ≥ 1 genome in which iro and/or iuc was detected; vertical lines indicate STs belonging to the same clonal group (CG) as labelled. Pie charts indicate prevalence of iro and/or iuc within common K. pneumoniae lineages. The detection of individual iro and iuc lineages within each K. pneumoniae ST is indicated in the grid, coloured as per Fig. 1. Bar plots indicate sample size (number of genomes per ST; note log10 scale). Heatmap on the right indicates prevalence of capsule (K) locus types in each K. pneumoniae ST, coloured as per inset legend. Individual columns are included for K types that are common amongst virulent clones; where other K types were detected, these are represented in the ‘other’ column, and the relevant K type for that ST is labelled to the right
