Comparisons of DNA composition from clinical skin and wound swabs using kit-based extractions (PS1) and the method described here (PS2). For the remainder fraction, bacterial community composition was deteremined by 16S rRNA sequencing (a). Composition was summarized by averaging the relative abundance of taxa at the Family level across sample type (skin or wound). Families with >‚ÄČ2% average relative abundance are shown. Recovery of viral DNA in the VLP-enriched fraction was estimated by shotgun sequencing and read mapping to the IMG/VR viral metagenome database (b). Percentage of reads mapped per sample are plotted here, and mean percentages are compared by t-tests
