Select microbial clades significantly linked to host environment and treatment. Anaerostipes decreased significantly in the gut communities of smokers, and Dorea, Butyricicoccus, and Coriobacteriaceae were among the taxa most reduced in patients receiving antibiotics (Abx). These associations were significant even in a multivariate model accounting for sample biogeography and disease status. Sqrt, square root.
