Geographic variation in the genetic structure of natural enteric populations of Escherichia coli was assessed at both the single-locus and dilocus levels from allozyme genotypes at 12 enzyme loci in 178 cell lines isolated from human hosts in Sweden, Iowa, and Tonga. Although there was significant heterogeneity in allele frequencies at six of the 12 loci, geographic variation accounted for only 2.0% of the total genetic diversity (HT = 0.518). Ohta's D-statistics were used to partition the… CONTINUE READING
