Additional file 8: of An optimized swine dysentery murine model to characterize shedding and clinical disease associated with “Brachyspira hampsonii” infection

Heat map displaying clinical signs and faecal shedding in Experiment 2 during the post-inoculation period. Culture positive results are represented by “+” on 5, 7, 9 and 12 dpi, and termination (all samples were strongly β-haemolytic). Colour of square (grey scale) represents the faecal consistency score on the given day. Culture and PCR performed on the last faecal sample and colonic tissue collected at termination to confirm “Brachyspira hampsonii” are indicated by *. (TIFF 1522 kb)
