Figure 3

The abundance of each module is defined as the sum of the relative abundances of all the KOs associated with that module and is plotted by age of source subject. Lines connect samples from the same subject. The bold lines illustrate the average abundance of the module for all CF vs. all non-CF samples within a year of age (i.e., 0 to 365 days, 366 to 730 days, etc.), with each average plotted at the midpoint for each year. The number of samples available to calculate each average is shown inside the marker.
