Microbial diversity and abundance difference between healthy and periodontitis samples. The statistical test results of the alpha-diversities and the significantly differentially represented microbial species under different periodontal states. a represents box plot and the test results of alpha-diversity, b) represents those of the differentially abundant species. As for the box color coding in both subplots, the color of green represents healthy samples, yellow represents stable samples and red represents progressing samples. Statistical significance is coded as: n.s. (P > 0.05), *(P < =0.05), **(P < 0.01), ***(P < 0.001) and is labeled above the corresponding boxes
