Strain communities depend on their constituent parts. The simulated growth performance of all the strain triplets (simulation) that are identified in the diversity graph of glucose with respect to the mean of the performances of the strain pairs (prediction) is shown. The correlation coefficient equals to 0.8486 (p-value = 0). The points that lie above the line where predicted growth equals simulated growth (shown in red) correspond to unexploited strain pairs and are highlighted with different colors. These strain pairs, in particular, are edges between highly central nodes.
