High species diversity of trichostrongyle parasite communities within and between Western Canadian commercial and conservation bison herds revealed by nemabiome metabarcoding

PMCID: 5952520
PMID: 29764472
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-018-2880-y

[…] ac) between the cow-calf production groups compared to the feeder production groups for the commercial herds was 0.256381.Beta diversity, at the species level, among populations was assessed with the MetaStats function in Mothur (pairwise P-values provided in Additional file : Table S2 and differences in species prevalence by animal age for the conservation herds is provided in Additional file : T […]


The fallopian tube microbiome: implications for reproductive health

PMCID: 5940370
PMID: 29765558
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.25059

[…] ere generated using QIIME, and were visualised using the function heatmap.2 in the R gplots library []. Comparisons between paired samples were performed using the non-parametric statistical software Metastats which corrects for multiple comparisons is robust for sparse data []. […]


The impact of storage buffer, DNA extraction method, and polymerase on microbial analysis

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5908915
PMID: 29674641
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24573-y
call_split See protocol

[…] r) hypothesis testing was performed to test whether the differential clustering of the PBS samples in the dendrograms was significant. Differences in the 30 most abundant OTUs were assessed using the metastats command in mothur and p-values for differences in individual OTUs were corrected for multiple comparisons using Bonferroni correction. Values of p < 0.05 were considered statistically signif […]


Identification of Major Rhizobacterial Taxa Affected by a Glyphosate Tolerant Soybean Line via Shotgun Metagenomic Approach

PMCID: 5924556
PMID: 29659545
DOI: 10.3390/genes9040214

[…] Wilcoxon rank-sum test was used to examine the significance of alpha diversity indices. Metastats [], described in detail in our previous studies [,], was used to obtain the relative abundance differences of microbial communities between groups (groups = 2, samples per group ≥ 3). The ob […]


Gastrointestinal microbial community changes in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) exposed to crude oil

BMC Microbiol
PMCID: 5879832
PMID: 29609542
DOI: 10.1186/s12866-018-1171-2

[…] tion in “Vegan”. Similarity percentage (SIMPER) procedure implemented in “Vegan” was used to quantify the contribution of individual OTUs to the overall Bray-Curtis dissimilarity between the groups. “MetaStats” [] was used to test for OTUs and orders with statistically significant differential abundances between the exposure groups. Only OTUs containing more than 0.1% of the total number of reads […]


Dietary butyrate glycerides modulate intestinal microbiota composition and serum metabolites in broilers

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5862971
PMID: 29563518
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-22565-6
call_split See protocol

[…] s in the cecal digesta was created by the R package gplots. Relative abundances of taxonomy and OTU were compared between the control and BG-treated group using a permutation test via online software Metastats. The qPCR data were subjected to simple t-test. Significance level was set at 0.05. […]
