Note: Only the number of immune genes in significantly correlated modules were shown in the brackets; NS = not significant; lac_C_p = Lactobacillus population from the colon content; lac_T_p = Lactobacillus population from the attached colon; fea_C_p = Faecali bacterium prausnitzii population from the colon content; fea_T_p = Faecali bacterium prausnitzii population from the attached colon; bif_C_p = Bifidobacterium population from the colon content; bif_T_p = Bifidobacterium population from the attached colon
