Figure 2. Analysis of hepatitis C virus transmission clusters identified across a range of percentile thresholds among prisoners in New South Wales, Australia, 2005–2012. Analysis shows the relationship between the number of clusters detected and the percentile thresholds from the distribution of genetic distances generated by using genotype 1 (A) and genotype 3 (B) sequences. At the lowest percentile threshold, only clusters containing sequences from the same participant are detected (black bars). When this threshold is increased, clusters of sequences from distinct participants arise (white bars).
