Exclusive bacterial species
OTUs showing differential abundances between yellow (HC) and blue (HF) abalone with statistical and biological significance obtained from LEfSe analyses. OTUs are ranked according to its effect size (LDA score).
Non-parametric multidimensional scaling (MDS) of Sorensen similarity index based on presence and absence of OTUs assembled at 97% similarity cut-off of the gut microbiota of Haliotis fulgens (HF) and H. corrugata (HC).
Genetic groups interactions
Regression of the average Jaccard distance based on phylogenetic groups of bacterial OTUs (10% similarity) as a function of their abundance –log scale – (HF: Haliotis fulgens, HC: Haliotis corrugata).
Ranks of the KO genes according to their KO count number (log scale) obtained with the script categorize by function in PICRUSt.
Classified OTUs assignement
Reads number for each detected OTU.
PICRUSt identified KOs genes
Count number for each identified gene
PICRUSt identified metabolic functions
Count number for each identified metabolic function.
