  1. The fold enrichment for genes within each GO term are indicated for each strain and antibiotic treatment compared to the expected values from the reference strain. Only those GO terms that were significantly enriched in at least one strain are included (Bonferroni-correct P < 0.05)
  2. NS not significantly enriched
