Fig. 4

a A schematic of the pairwise sensitized assay plate testing preference between two bacteria conditions at a time. Percent of worms on b) Live OP50 vs. 0.25% PFA-treated, c Live OP50 vs. 0.5% PFA-treated, d Mock-treated OP50 vs. 0.25% PFA-treated, and e Mock-treated OP50 vs. 0.5% PFA-treated. Single asterisk denotes p-value < 0.05, double asterisks denote p-value < 0.002, triple asterisks denote p-value < 0.001, and quadruple asterisks denote p-value < 0.0001.
