Correlation matrix between measured cell wall compositional features and enzymatic saccharification efficiency of glucose (GlcE), xylose (XylE), arabinose (AraE), in miscanthus biomass harvested at the peak biomass and senesced stages. Values for GlcE, XylE and AraE consist of the percentages of the total content of the corresponding monosaccharide that exists in the cell wall (% total glucose; % total xylose; % total arabinose), released upon enzymatic saccharification. Pearson correlation coefficients are presented as a colour gradient ranging from red to green. Statistically significant correlations (P ≤ 0.05, n = 32) are identified with a ‘*’. For the eight miscanthus genotypes, GlcE, XylE, AraE, Glucose, xylose, lignin, ester-linked ferulic and p-coumaric acids and acetate were measured as % cell wall material (CWM). Ara/Xyl is the ratio of arabinose to xylose determined in the CWM. N designates the normalised value representing the total epitope abundance (OD/g of CWM) for specific mAbs: xyloglucans (CCRC-M87, galactosylated xyloglucan), glucan (BG1, MLG), xylans (CCRC-M137; CCRC-M144; CCRC-M154) and pectins (CCRC-M7, RG-I/AG; CCRC-M38, homogalacturonan backbone). More detail regarding the glycan-directed mAb classes is available in Additional file 1. The full correlation matrix and associated P values are shown in Additional file 6
