  1. Results of SIMPER analysis (performed using Primer 7) to determine the contribution of specific microbial taxa to overall dissimilarity between swabs and biopsy groups within square-root transformed Bray-Curtis resemblance dataset (Fig. 2). Average relative abundance (%) in both biopsy and swab datasets is presented alongside SIMPER analysis output
