Fig. 1

Pathogen identification based on abundance and background subtraction. Organisms in each sample are plotted as a function of matched read pairs per million read pairs (rM) at the species level based on nucleotide (nt) alignment. For an organism to be considered a potential pathogen, it must have known pathogenic potential and have >20 rM (above dashed line). For subject 3, H. hammondi is a eukaryotic organism closely related to T. gondii. It is expected that a small fraction of sequences originating from T. gondii will align to other closely related organisms. Abbreviations: sp, species; H. hammondi, Hammondia hammondi; T. gondii, Toxoplasma gondii; HSV-1, herpes simplex virus-1; C. neoformans, Cryptococcus neoformans; P. melaninogenica, Prevotella melaninogenica; V. dahliae, Verticillium dahliae; S. erythraea, Saccharopolyspora erythraea; S. saprophyticus, Staphylococcus saprophyticus
