Table 3

Capacity of alleles, overall sequence type, and clonal complex information to predict host species for Campylobacter jejuni isolates from cattle, sheep, and chickens

Genotype information used% correct% uncertainty removed*
Sequence type4010
Clonal complex (1)†4213
Clonal complex (2)†4213
Alleles plus sequence type6040
Alleles plus clonal complex†5837

*Random selection would be expected to predict correctly 33% of the time. The proportion of the remaining uncertainty (67%) that is resolved is shown.

†Clonal complex (1) substituted sequence type for clonal complex in which no clonal complex is assigned and clonal complex (2) substituted a missing value code. Clonal complex (1) was also used to assess alleles plus clonal complex.
