Fig. 2

Heatmap of virulence genes present in 103 wildlife salmonella isolates. Salmonella genome Assemblies were searched against a local copy of the Virulence Factor Database using BLAST. In the figure, each row represents a virulence gene and each column denotes a sample. Legend on the left side of the figure denotes the following categories of virulence genes: (I) Fimbrial adherence determinants, (II) Macrophage inducible genes, (III) Magnesium uptake, (IV) Non-fimbrial adherence determinants, (V) Secretion system, (VI) Serum resistance, (VII) Stress protein, (VIII) Toxin, and (IX) Two-component system. The virulence genes belonged 5 categories—PSLT, SeHA, SEN, SeSA, and STM. Seventeen isolates had fewer virulence genes compared to others and this correlated with the absence of genes associated with multidrug resistance. Legend description: 0 = absent, 1 = present. Data underlying this figure is given in Additional file 3: Table S3
