Dynamics of longitudinal microbial composition and facultative anaerobic microbial profiles in inflammatory bowel disease. a Individual microbial trajectories of 20 inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients and 11 control individuals with sufficient longitudinal data over time, from the current study (Massachusetts General Hospital, p-identifiers) and (Emory University, S-identifiers). Each subject exhibits an individualized microbiome signature. Each phylum has an overall color while genera are represented as different shades of the overall color. b Maximal relative abundances of facultative anaerobes across all subjects in the LSS (n = 266), Lewis et al. (n = 368) [13], and HMP (n = 80) [15] cohorts. Overall, facultative anaerobes are significantly higher in IBD patients compared to controls (nested ANOVA LSS p = 0.0478, Lewis et al. p = 0.005)
