Gestational diabetes is associated with change in the gut microbiota composition in third trimester of pregnancy and postpartum

PMCID: 5952429
PMID: 29764499
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-018-0472-x

[…] lucose levels, insulin sensitivity and disposition index) was tested using linear regression with and without adjustment for pre-pregnancy BMI.Analyses of community structure were performed using the vegan R packages. The cross-sectional difference in community structure between women with and without GDM and between women with GDM diagnosed by either fasting or stimulated hyperglycaemia or a comb […]


Microbiota modification by probiotic supplementation reduces colitis associated colon cancer in mice

PMCID: 5949713
PMID: 29760543
DOI: 10.3748/wjg.v24.i18.1995
call_split See protocol

[…] CH v9.2.64 package. For OTU clustering a threshold of 97% similarity was used through the UPARSE-OTU algorithm. α- and β-diversity analyses were calculated using the R package Phyloseq v.1.19.1[] and vegan 2.4_2 packets, using the OTU table normalized to the smallest sample size. Taxa with differential abundance between groups were identified using the Kruskal-Wallis test (P < 0.05). In the bar pl […]


The effect of the timing of exposure to Campylobacter jejuni on the gut microbiome and inflammatory responses of broiler chickens

PMCID: 5948730
PMID: 29753324
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-018-0477-5

[…] arisons with analysis of similarity percentages (SIMPER) [] was used to determine the contribution of each taxonomic unit to the Bray-Curtis dissimilarity of pairs of distinct sample groups using the vegan package [] in R using a script by Andrew Steinberger ( as previously reported for the interrogation of 16S rDNA OTUs []. […]


Dissection of niche competition between introduced and indigenous arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi with respect to soybean yield responses

Sci Rep

[…] y analysis of variance (ANOVA) with random effects for block differences were applied to evaluate the effects of the inoculation and P fertilizer application on shoot P concentration and grain yield. Vegan package for R was employed for β-diversity analysis with Bray-Curtis similarity index (read-abundance data based index) and for permutation multivariate analysis of variance (PERMANOVA) in which […]


Comparing Microbiome Sampling Methods in a Wild Mammal: Fecal and Intestinal Samples Record Different Signals of Host Ecology, Evolution

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5938605
PMID: 29765359
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00803

[…] ) distance matrices to test for differences in microbiome beta diversity between sample types, and tested for homogeneity of variance among samples using “betadisper” as implemented in the R package vegan (Oksanen et al., ). We visualized relative abundances of bacteria in paired sample types using the “plot_heatmap” function in phyloseq v. 1.22.3, and visualized ordination plots using Principle […]


Long term changes in the planktonic cnidarian community in a mesoscale area of the NW Mediterranean

PLoS One
PMCID: 5929553
PMID: 29715282
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196431

[…] ing stations was performed. Species abundances were log (x+1) transformed and an ordination by a Bray-Curtis dissimilarity matrix was performed using the r-language function metaMDS available in the “vegan” package []. Subsequently, an adonis permutation multivariate analysis of variance and pairwise tests were used to test for significant differences in the cnidarian communities between surveys. […]
