From: Exposure to a social stressor disrupts the community structure of the colonic mucosa-associated microbiota

Figure 1

Exposure to the SDR stressor did not impact alpha-diversity. Mice were exposed to the SDR stressor, or were left undisturbed as non-stressed Home Cage controls (HCC control). After 454 pyrosequencing, three measures of community alpha-diversity were calculated using QIIME. A. Equitability Index, B. Shannon Diversity Index, and C. Chao1 Rarefaction Measurement were unaffected by exposure to the SDR stressor. Data are from nā€‰=ā€‰5 mice per group.
