Table 2 The 7 rules of the predictive model describing all relevant relationships between the 5 selected markers

From: Comparative genome analysis of a large Dutch Legionella pneumophila strain collection identifies five markers highly correlated with clinical strains

  1. The 7 rules of the predictive model describing all relevant relationships between the 5 selected markers. Each rule "votes" for a sample as being a clinical sample if the result of the rule evaluates to 'True' when the Boolean value for each probe is entered. If 4 or more rules in the table agree that a given sample is clinical, then the "meta-rule" of these 7 rules predicts that the sample is clinical.
