Comparison of the microbiota community in gnotobiotic mice transplanted with fecal samples from donors, recipients pre and post transplant. Gnotobiotic mice were transplanted with the human fecal samples from donor, recipient and RpT samples from FMT 1, 2 and 4. Panel a PCoA plot of the fecal samples from all the gnotobiotic mice. The mice transplanted with donor, recipient, and RpT are named as MD, MR and MRpT, respectively. The orange colored spheres are from mice transplanted with the recipient (1, 2 or 4) samples (MR), the blue spheres are from mice transplanted with donor (1, 2 or 4) (MD) and the yellow spheres are mice transplanted with fecal samples of the FMT (MRpT). Panel b, c and d Individual PCoA plots of donor, recipient and RpT from set 1 (Panel b), 2 (Panel c) and 4 (Pane d) transplanted into gnotobiotic mice. Each panel represents the PCoA plot of individual mice transplanted with the donor and recipient pre and post FMT (RpT)
