Notes copied from Capsular_polysaccharide_biosynthesis_in_Staphylococcus:
The Staphylococcus aureus allelic genetic loci for serotype 5 and 8 capsule expression contain the type-specific genes flanked by common genes.

cap5A through cap5G and cap5L through cap5P are essentially identical to those of cap8A through cap8G and cap8L through cap8P. (Serotypes differ in alleles H, I, J, K)

Variant code 5 means the strain has type 5 serotype.
Variant code 8 means the strain has type 8 serotype.
