@INRAE Marion Borey, Claire Rogel-Gaillard (légende: Summary of taxonomic annotation and quantitative analysis of the 23 OTUs that were differentially abundant in the D28 fecal microbiota of pigs that demonstrated extreme IAV-specific IgG responses at D63. OTUs are ordered according to their phylogeny. Taxonomic classification is indicated at the genus level except for two OTUs annotated at the levels of family (f) and order (o). The cluster identifier for each OTU is indicated in parentheses after the taxonomic annotation. The Log2 fold change (Log2 FC) between high (red) and low (blue) responders is represented by horizontal histograms together with the mean relative abundance, in percentage (%), per group. The respective occurrence of each OTU in high (red) and low (blue) responder groups is indicated on the right hand of the figure and indicates the percentage of individuals per group that contained that OTU.)
