Figure 2

Taxa significantly associated with IBD.

Center panel is a compositional heatmap of the selected taxa for each of the samples in the pediatric case-control study. Left panel indicates the significance of the association of each taxa with disease state, as measured by the q-value. Right panel shows a measure of effect size (Cohen’s delta), highlighting in red those taxa which are significantly more prevalent in IBD samples. Bottom panels show relevant metadata for each sample, including disease activity as measured by PUCAI [32] and PCDAI indices [33].
