  • a OTU labels are provided to allow consistency for comparisons with other tables that report OTU abundances and changes. Values report the mean relative abundance (percent) of an OTU in the overall microbiota for its grouping. Values in boldface type denote core OTUs in their group, while values in lightface type indicate that an OTU was variable. The final row reports the total proportion of the microbiota that is accounted for by these OTUs (percent).
