  1. In the characterized C. jejuni strain collection, strains positive by microarray for these genes had lower mean rank values then the negative strains, as assessed by the Mann–Whitney test. An alpha value lower than 0.05 was considered for genes present in strains likely to possess different mean rank values or phenotypical properties, while an alpha value lower than 0.002 was considered for identifying genes that are of greater importance; Phenotypic properties refer to Agg = autoagglutination; Chm = chemotaxis; Inv = invasion; Adh = adhesion.
