Evaluate pathogen strains for their general and specific virulence

 

This is a function when the biplot is used in visual analysis of host genotype by pathogen strain two-way data. For the evaluation of the virulence of the pathogen strains, the following biplot is most informative:

 

 

Note this biplot has the following settings (compare with host genotype evaluation):

 

1. host genotypes are treated as testers and pathogen strains as entries;

 

2. tester-centered model (centering = 2);

 

3. entry-focused scaling (SVP =1);

 

4. the average-tester coordination view.

 

 

Interpretations:

 

S48 > S78 >>> Average > other strains.
