Profiling Living Bacteria Informs Preparation of Fecal Microbiota Transplantations

Fig 4

PMA-seq registers little alteration of the living bacterial community with longer lag time.

(a) Beta diversity between subsamples from different lag time preparations also reflected community perturbation, but the dissimilarity values were lower than for oxygen exposure. (b) Beta diversity between standard 16S rRNA sequencing and PMA-seq results did not reflect longer lag times, suggesting that lag time did not greatly alter overall community composition. (c) OTUs of three dominant genera did not show uniform reactions to different lag times.
