From: Defining the healthy "core microbiome" of oral microbial communities

Figure 4

Shared abundant phylotypes in three oral microbiomes and their relative abundance. Relative abundance of shared phylotypes within an individual microbiome. Only abundant phylotypes that contributed to at least 0.1% of the individual microbiome are shown. The most abundant phylotypes (≥0.5% of the microbiome) are grouped separately in the upper panel. Phylotypes were defined as OTUs clustering sequences at a 3% genetic difference. The highest taxon (in most cases, genus) at which the OTU was identified, is shown together with the cluster identification number. The full list of OTUs is available in Additional file 1. Different colours indicate three different microbiomes, S1, S2 and S3, respectively.
