Growth profiles can predict virulence and presence of virulence factors.
A-D) Volcano plots for the correlation between the strains’ growth profiles and: A) virulence levels, B) presence of the HPI, C) presence of aerobactin, and D) presence of sitABCD. E-F) Use of the strains’ growth profiles to build a predictor of virulence levels and presence of the three iron uptake systems. E) Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves and F) Precision-Recall curve for the four tested predictors. G) Feature importance for the predictors, showing the top 15 conditions contributing to the virulence level predictor.
