Figure 6

Box-and-whisker plot for approximate accuracy of13C incorporation for groups of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 200, 300, 500, and 1000 peptides from 100 random draws (no repetition) for Mycobacterium tuberculosis peptide dataset of 0, 50 and 100 atom %13C incorporation. Boxes represent lower and upper quartile, whiskers the upper and lower (95%) confidence interval and thick lines in boxes the median within the sub-sample groups. The two thin black lines depict 5% incorporation limits and the thick black line depicts the number of samples necessary to cross the 5% incorporation limit.
