CPS biosynthesis locus diversity. A. Heat map showing presence (green), aberrance (orange) and absence (red) of each gene in each test strain, showing the variation within the CPS biosynthesis locus. The CPS locus of the serotype K7 strain 34-4 shows the highest similarity with the K1 serotype strain W83. B. For each probe in the CPS biosynthesis locus and for each test strain a log-ratio value compared to strain W83 is depicted by a data point, supporting the heat map results as shown in figure 4A.
