Table 1 Number of common and subject-specific taxa

From: Study of inter- and intra-individual variations in the salivary microbiota

  Total # of taxa # of common taxa (%) # of subject-specific taxa (%)
Phylum 8 5 (62.5) 0 (0)
Class 15 4 (26.7) 1 (6.7)
Order 32 6 (18.8) 1 (3.1)
Family 57 9 (15.8) 2 (3.5)
Genus 81 8 (9.9) 1 (1.2)
OTU003 583 11 (1.9) 17 (2.9)
Distinct sequences (100%-ID phylotypes) 3011 9 (0.3) 69 (2.3)
  1. Taxa found in the three time-point samples of all subjects are designated as common. Subject-specific taxa correspond to those found in the three time-point samples from some subjects and absent in the three time-point samples from the others. Taxa (phylum to genus) were identified using MG-RAST with a minimum alignment length of 105, the RDP dataset option and a maximum e-value of 10-30 [12]. OTUs003 were defined using CD-HIT [33], and include the hypervariable regions.
