CBN average F-value over all the lineages. F-values obtained by CBN using different combinations of biomarkers 1) Spoligotype alone (Spoligo) 2) 12-loci MIRU (12M) 3) 24-loci MIRU (24M) 4) Spoligotype + 12-loci MIRU (Sp+12M) and 5) Spoligotype + 24-loci MIRU (Sp+24M). Out-of-sample testing was done on CDC (using 10% stratified cross-validation), MIRU-VNTRplus and Brussels. In general, the performance improves when the spoligotype is used in conjunction with the MIRU profile as compared to using a single type of biomarker.
