Impact of the markers and sequence analysis pipeline tool used on observed OTU richness after Illumina-amplicon sequencing of the nematode Steinernema glaseri. Boxplots representing the variation in OTU numbers (only OTUs with an abundance > 0.1% of total reads in individual replicates) as a function of the marker (rpoB marker versus 16S marker) and sequence analyse pipeline tool (FROGS versus DADA2) used. Each boxplot corresponds to a statistical analysis of the four replicates; thin purple and red lines correspond to minimum and maximum values, respectively; and thicker green lines in the boxes correspond to the medians
