Table 1 Distribution of vaginal sample cluster profiles between 16S rRNA gene sequencing results and IS-pro results, respectively. Only samples successfully analyzed by both techniques are shown. It is expressed in percentage how many profiles with IS-pro matched the profile analyzed with 16S sequencing
