(AC) The relative composition of the human fecal samples A, B, and C, and (D) the aquifer community members. In A and D estimated percent relative abundance of the community is plotted, and in B and C, coverage is plotted, but estimated percent relative abundance is noted on the figure for select members. Organisms are classified at the phylum level. The human fecal sample A community is dominated by Prevotella copri DSM 18205, which accounts for more than 40% of the sequencing reads and is represented by several strains. Sequencing depth was not sufficient for human fecal sample C to accurately estimate roughly 25% of the community abundance, which includes MEL.C3. Aspects of the community composition of the aquifer sample are discussed in Wrighton et al. (2012).
