Additional file 3: of Disruption of the microbiota across multiple body sites in critically ill children

Principal coordinates analysis plots of weighted UniFrac indices for microbial communities of PICU patients, healthy adults, and healthy children (A, GI; B, skin; C, oral). (D) Principal coordinates analysis plots of microbial communities from all body sites of PICU patients, healthy adults, and healthy children. (E) Principal coordinates analysis plots of microbial communities from all body sites of PICU patients, healthy adults, and healthy children. Here, all PICU samples are highlighted in red regardless of body site. Note the high proportion of centrally located PICU samples that do not fall neatly into the GI, skin, or oral clusters.
