Microbiota of the inner and outer labia differ between average and high BMI women. The bar graph shows relative percent of bacterial genera for inner and outer labia (a). The top 13 most abundant genera (average across all labial samples) are shown. Weighted UniFrac principal coordinate analysis was done to show separation between microbiota of outer labia and inner labia (b), and average and high BMI women (c). Statistical significance of weighted UniFrac was calculated using anosim and PERMANOVA tests and p-values are shown
