Comparison of biodiversity indices between different groups of specimens. Panel a-f show comparisons between tumour and benign specimens; panel g-j show comparisons between specimens of high and low Gleason Scores. Panel a-c and g-h are derived from metagenomic data; panel d-f and i-j are derived from metatranscriptomic data. Panel a, d, g and i show comparison of alpha-diversity indices; ns (not significant), p > 0.05 by unpaired Student’s t-test. Panel b and e show comparisons of beta-diversity indices. Distances between specimens were divided into four groups: ‘paired’, distance between the matched tumour/benign specimens from the same patients; ‘intra-tumour’, distance between tumour specimens from different patients; ‘intra-benign’, distance between benign specimens from different patients; ‘Tumour vs Benign’, distance between tumour and benign specimens from different patients. ***, p < 0.001 by unpaired Student’s t-test. Panel c, f, h and j are NMDS plots
