Additional file 7: Figure S2. of Structure and function of the healthy pre-adolescent pediatric gut microbiome

Evaluating the effects of known traits on community structure and function in children and adults. PCoA of the GI microbial communities of healthy children and adults as a function of Bray-Curtis dissimilarities and 16S-based OTUs (A–D), WGS-based species (E–H), KO groups (I–L), and KEGG pathway profiles (M–P). Profiles were evaluated with respect to known traits, and the percent variation explained by each axis is indicated in parenthesis. Adonis analysis results describe the significance of each trait to overall community variation. (TIF 752 kb)
