Table 3: A color coded (green = high, yellow = moderate, red = poor) similarity index of likely sample identities based on the organism’s fatty acid content. The number in the similarity index value column expresses how closely the organism’s fatty acid content matched that of a library strain used as its match. The closer the number is to 1 the more likely the species indicated is the correct species for the samples in the study.
