Episodic increases in persistent taxa. The “average” panel represents 16S rRNA gene amplicon data averaged across all samples at each time point per infant. The “armrest” and “sink_basins” panel is the same data but without averaging across environments. The red line highlights the time point in which an increase of Enterobacteriaceae was detected in infant 9’s gut. Samples are plotted in chronological order on the x-axis. (PDF 433 kb)
