Partial least squares discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) loading plot showing the contributing microbial community members towards the separation of the PLS-DA scores between patients are frequent exacerbators (>3 exacerbation events per annum) and sputum from patients who are stable (≤3 exacerbation events per annum). Taxa deemed clinically relevant (based on those screened during standard culture) are highlighted in blue. Some sample labels have been removed for ease of interpretation.
