Comparison between results of liquid genomic phenotyping (this study) and previous results using a solid agar assay (Begley et al, 2004). A) A boxplot of the previous dataset (x-axis) where the data ranges from 0 (no sensitivity to MMS) and 30 (high sensitivity to MMS) and the dataset presented here. The bold line represents the median, the box contains 50% of the data, the whiskers extend to 1.5 times the inter-quartile range, and outliers are represented by dots. Two lines (blue) are fitted with linear regression to the data, one in the range of sensitivity scores 0-7 and one in the range of sensitivity scores 7-20. B) Venn diagram showing the overlap in GO terms enriched in sensitive strains from the liquid assay and the agar assay.
