Two clades within Turicibacter that manifest opposite associations with aggression

This image is similar to figure 3, except that two clades within a subtree of Turicibacter highlighted: node1504, which is common to and more abundant in the aggressive dogs, and node 1573, which is common to and more abundant in the non-aggressive dogs.
