Figure 5

Principle Component Analysis (PCA) results on all individuals sampled. PCA was performed at the level of OTUs, clustering sequences at a 3% difference. The PCA plot of tonsillar communities shows PCA analysis using the first two components, accounting for 62.75% of the sample variation. Each point represents the tonsillar community of one individual pig. Colored circles represent the 95% confidence limit for each group of samples.
