  1. The data from pyrosequencing (PRAPS) is broken down into the number of sequences (seq) from each sample associated with the indicated phenotypic characteristic (anaerobe, gram positive, etc). Also shown are the number of genera that were associated with each of the phenotypic categories. UWB refers to unknown wound bacteria or sequences without significant similarity to a database sequences.
