Comparison of beta diversity results for 331 samples sequenced on both 454 and Illumina. Procrustes plot comparing principal coordinates of unweighted UniFrac distances. Lines connect paired samples sequences on 454 (white tip of line) and Illumina (red tip of line). The Illumina samples were evenly sampled to 5,000 sequences per sample and the 454 samples were evenly sampled to 500 sequences per sample.

Animation tracing change in position in PC1 and PC2 with time for all body sites across both individuals. The view presented in this video is directly comparable with Figure 1a. Background colors correspond to Figure 1a. The M3 time series is shown as a red trace (with left palm in orange), and the F4 time series is shown as a blue trace (with left palm in white).
