Predicted Probability of CWD vs. Number of Polymorphisms per Animal

The graph above shows the probability of CWD as predicted by the number of polymorphic alleles. Total number of polymorphisms omitting locus 153 were used as the independent variable. The graph indicates that the more polymorphisms, the less likely of developing CWD.
