Virulence assessment of vaccine (2eUK2001, 316FUK2001, IIUK2001) and wild type (JD87/107) MAP strains in a mouse model. A. Quartile-Based Box and Whisker plots of bacterial load (CFU/g) in the liver at 4, 8 and 12 weeks post-infection. B. Quartile-Based Box and Whisker plots of mean ranked density of leucocyte clusters in the liver at 4, 8 and 12 weeks post-infection. C. Quartile-Based Box and Whisker plots of mean ranked density of leucocyte clusters with AFB in the liver at 4, 8 and 12 weeks post-infection. * indicates an unusually large or small observation (outlier). Values beyond the whiskers are outliers. The top of the box is the third quartile −75% of the data values are less than or equal to this value. The bottom of the box is the first quartile −25% of the data values are less than or equal to this value. The median is shown within the box. The whiskers extend to the highest and lowest data values which have not been identified as outliers.
