Additional file 2: of Meta-transcriptomics reveals a diverse antibiotic resistance gene pool in avian microbiomes

Figure S1. Results considering only healthy birds and those not infected with avian influenza virus. Figure S2. Distribution of antimicrobial resistance genes across localities. Figure S3. PCR analyses utilizing individual birds confirm that those from the WWTP harbor a higher diversity of antibiotic resistance genes. Figure S4. Distribution of antibiotic resistance genes across bird orders. Figure S5. Principal Coordinate Analysis of the expression of microbial metabolic pathways. Figure S6. No correlation observed between library size and resistance gene burden. Figure S7. Resistance gene expression profile varies with avian influenza infection and health status. Figure S8. Relationship between number of microbial reads and resistance gene burden. (PDF 5278 kb)
