Table 2 Description of the vanA plasmid bin groups (> 10 isolates) present in the plasmid network (270 nodes) consisting uniquely of predicted plasmid bins. In total, eight distinct plasmid bin groups were defined with a total of 239 isolates

  1. aThe plasmid bin groups were assigned as carrying a particular plasmid type (A–I) after including the complete vanA plasmid sequences into the network and observing co-clustering of predicted and complete plasmid sequences. For each vanA plasmid bin group predicted plasmid type, we indicated the total number of isolates belonging to the group forming the predicted plasmid type, percentage of SCs, and assigned plasmid type
