Figure 2

The distribution of OTU's according to the prevalence in the microbiota. The number and prevalence of OTU based on the relative prevalence in each sample (cut off < 0.01%). The number of different OTU's in the group of less abundant genera was highest in furnished and aviary cage, in contrast to conventional cage where we observed fewer but more dominating genera.
