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

[…] to identify which features (i.e. species) are differentially abundant between two populations, beta diversity estimations between populations on a species and genera basis were accomplished with the metastats plugin in mothur v. 1.36.1, using 1000 permutations and default parameters []. as metastats assumes the non-normal distribution of data, it runs a modified nonparametric t-test to assign […]


Circadian Rhythm Dysfunction Accelerates Disease Progression in a Mouse Model With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

PMCID: 5928145
PMID: 29740382
DOI: 10.3389/fneur.2018.00218

[…] values in the wt controls., all the data are presented as the means ± sem. the comparisons of the relative abundances of microflora were analyzed using the differentially abundant features program (metastats, a one-way of analysis of variance followed by bonferroni’s post hoc test for multiple comparisons was used to analyze mn survival and glial activation. […]


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

[…] 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 […]


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

PMCID: 5924556
PMID: 29659545
DOI: 10.3390/genes9040214

[…] from the ncbi until december 2017 at the one codex data platform (, 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). […]


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

[…] 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 […]


Yeast culture dietary supplementation modulates gut microbiota, growth and biochemical parameters of grass carp

PMCID: 5902330
PMID: 29578305
DOI: 10.1111/1751-7915.13261

[…] firmicutes and proteobacteria constituted the four most dominant phyla of bacterial communities in grass carp with different yc treatments, followed by ckc4 and verrucomicrobia (fig. a). metastats‐based analysis of differential abundances among these phyla found that fusobacteria (21.47 ±3.11%, p = 0.050) and ckc4 (3.19 ± 0.71%, p = 0.016) were significantly decreased in treat3, […]
