Fig. 2

Taxonomic composition of gut metagenomes in Crohn’s disease patients is characterized by the pronounced presence of Escherichia/Shigella. The heatmap shows relative abundance of microbial genera (columns) in microbiota samples (rows). The genus levels are provided in percentages of the total bacterial abundance. The blue lines connect pairs of stool and ileal metagenomes from the same patients. Hierarchical clustering is performed using whole-genome UniFrac metric for rows and (1 - Spearman correlation) - for columns; linkage was performed by Ward’s method. Only the major genera (> 3% of the total abundance in at least one sample) are shown
