Correlation analysis identifies species positively or negatively associated with C. difficile. The CCREPE N-dimensional checkerboard score (y-axis) incorporates the ratio of co-variation to co-exclusion patterns normalized to a range of (−1, +1). In addition to C. scindens, we identify significant negative correlations with C. difficile for members of Blautia and positive correlations with other Clostridia and Veillonella spp. (*P ≤ 0.05). Ambiguous species level assignments are denoted by slashes. Key for re-analyzed datasets from the following studies: Recurrent CDI=10, Index CDI=21, FMT=9, Infant longitudinal=16, NICU=23 (Table S2)
