  • a Statistical testing and q value corrections were performed across the entire OTU table, but only OTUs that accounted for ≥1% of the bacterial community are reported. OTUs marked with an asterisk were observed in ≤2 individuals within the Juvenile_First cohort and thus may reflect random interindividual variation rather than a cohort-related difference. OTU labels are provided to allow consistency for comparisons with other tables that report OTU abundances and changes.
