θYC distances between bacterial communities of stool sample aliquots subjected to various temperature storage conditions from 3 patients. a Principal coordinates analysis (PCoA) of θYC distances between bacterial communities of stool sample aliquots. The aliquots of each sample were represented by a different color which corresponds to the colors of the horizontal bars above labels in Fig. 1. b The θYC distances between aliquots was significantly lower within samples (median: 0.035, IQR: 0.015-0.061) than between samples (median: 0.93, IQR: 0.85-0.97) (Wilcoxon test p-value: <0.0001)
