Figure 3: The distribution of reads assigned at phylum level. Holm-Bonferroni correction was used for significance test at 1% confidence. The thickness of the black highlighting is logarithmically proportional to the significance. A total of 23 similar prokaryotic phyla were represented in both metagenomes irrespective of their relative abundance. In the bacteria, the Proteobacteria was the most enriched group followed by Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes/Chlorobi group in that order. In the Archaea, the Euryarchaeota was also significantly followed by Crenarchaeota.
