Microbiota/metabolite correlations. Correlations among metabolite concentrations in feces and family level, spike-adjusted 16S rRNA gene abundances. Points correspond with samples collected from individual mice and colors indicate whether they were obtained from mice fed the control diet (blue) or the same diet supplemented with ACA (gold). Markers indicate the site where the mouse was housed: TJL (diamond), UM (circle), or UT (triangle). Metabolite concentrations are reported normalized to feces wet weight, and abundances are in spike-equivalent units. Values are on a linear scale between 0 and the subsequent tick label, above which, points are plotted logarithmically. The number of samples illustrated in each panel is described in Table 1
