Pathogenic Potential to Humans of Bovine Escherichia coli O26, Scotland
Figure 3. Patterns in data associated with the clinical severity of Escherichia coli O26 infection in humans, as identified by nonmetric multidimensional scaling, Scotland. A) Joint graph illustrating the association between the multilocus sequence typing and genotypic variables measured and the severity of the human infection (hemolytic uremic syndrome [HUS] in red and non-HUS [diarrhea, bloody diarrhea] in green). B) 3-dimensional scatterplot and 80% confidence ellipses (R rgl package ) around the cases in space illustrating the separation between individual classes as HUS (green) and non-HUS (red).
