Clustering and microbial community composition of different volunteers and recolonization in time. Samples were clustered using UPGMA with weighted UniFrac as a distance measure. The figure was generated with iTOL [70]. Composition is displayed as relative abundance, i.e. the number of reads assigned to a genus divided by the total number of reads assigned up to the genus level. Sample names with the same color come from the same volunteer (M = male1 to 6, F = female1 to 6), followed by the time of recolonization (t = 1, 3, 7 or 14 days). STR0 is normal, healthy skin (not tape-stripped). Colored bars represent the relative abundance of bacterial genera as determined by barcoded pyrosequencing.
