Figure 2

Heat plot of the abundance of each bacterial genus in each individual, based on the partial 16S rRNA sequences.

Each numbered column corresponds to a genus, with the genus name for each number indicated in Table S1. Each row is an individual saliva sample. The abundance of each genus is indicated by the grayscale value, according to the scale at the bottom of the plot. BP – Batwa Pygmy; DRC – group from the Democratic Republic of the Congo; SL – group from Sierra Leone.
