Temporal Profiles of the Most Abundant Level 3 Taxonomic Groups

Level 3 taxonomic groups were selected for display if their mean (normalized) relative abundance across all baby samples was greater than 1%. The x-axis indicates days since birth and is shown on a log scale, and the y-axis shows estimated (normalized) relative abundance. For some babies, no values are plotted for the first few days because the total amount of bacteria in the stool samples collected on those days was insufficient for microarray-based analysis.
