Fig. 1

Bacterial community composition of stool samples subjected to various temperature storage conditions. The relative abundances of 16S rRNA gene sequences (V4 region), classified to the genus level when possible, are shown. Labels indicate sample, storage condition (SC) as described in Table 1 and aliquot in the following format: sample_SC#_aliquot#. For example, A_2_1 is from sample A, storage condition number 2, aliquot number 1. The colors of the horizontal bars above labels correspond to sample color-coding in Fig. 2a. a Undiluted DNA for PCR. b DNA diluted 1:10 for PCR, indicated by d after aliquot number
