Taxonomic composition differences among different stability categories. The significant differences in relative abundances of genera between different patient stability categories based on either the coefficient of variation (CV) of the Shannon diversity index (SDI; top two panels) or the CV of the weighted UniFrac distances (bottom two panels). For each body habitat the population was divided into quartiles, where the first quartile was defined as low/stable, second and third as average, and fourth as high/variable. Differences in genera abundance across categories were determined using non-parametric Kruskal–Wallis analysis of variance, then corrected for the false discovery rate using the Benjamini and Hochberg method. Asterisks indicate adjusted P values: *P ≤ 0.05, **P ≤ 0.01, ***P ≤ 0.001, respectively. a Taxa by patient microbiome diversity. b Taxa by patient microbiome stability
