Table 2 This table shows the average clr-transformed abundances for select bacteria genera, chosen because they were found previously to associate with IBD

Genus p-value Control IBD UC CD Previous Association Agreement
Clostridium <0.001 3.785 4.898 4.397 5.331 Decreased in IBD No
Ruminococcus <0.001 2.895 -0.352 0.517 -1.102 Decreased in IBD Strong
Lactobacillus 0.006 1.352 2.202 1.586 2.733 Decreased in IBD No
Fusobacterium 0.012 -2.560 -1.866 -2.336 -1.460 Present in IBD Strong
Bifidobacterium 0.097 3.179 3.417 4.262 2.686 Decreased in IBD Mixed
Bacteroides 0.199 5.698 4.939 5.142 4.764 Decreased in IBD Weak
  1. Since abundance is expressed relative to the per-sample mean, positive values signify above-average presence for samples within that group. The evidence for previous association is taken from [42]. All p-values are FDR-adjusted. Two genera, Ruminococcus and Fusobacterium, show an association that agrees with past literature
