Sensitivity analyses of key infection properties.

<p>For each pathogen, we show the three most important parameters with the associated partial rank correlation coefficient (PRCC) and its 95% confidence interval. Notations for parameter values are in Tables <a href="http://www.ploscompbiol.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1006646#pcbi.1006646.t001" target="_blank">1</a> and <a href="http://www.ploscompbiol.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1006646#pcbi.1006646.t003" target="_blank">3</a>. Peak of infected cells is a measure of the size of the infection, peak of free-virion (or elementary bodies, EBs) load is how much progeny is released for re-seeding the infection or transmission, and day of peak is a measure for how quickly the infection grows. For effects on protection by epithelial parameters we tested: <i>ν</i>, <i>μ</i>, <i>ρ</i><sub><i>b</i></sub>, <i>ρ</i><sub><i>p</i></sub>, <i>ζ</i>, and <i>ζ</i><sub><i>u</i></sub>.</p>
