Extended Data Fig. 3: Microbial succession in the neonatal gut microbiota of vaginally delivered babies.

From: Stunted microbiota and opportunistic pathogen colonization in caesarean-section birth

Extended Data Fig. 3

Bar plots show longitudinal changes in the mean relative abundance of faecal bacteria at the genus level on day 4, day 7 and day 21, for genera with >1% mean relative abundance across all neonatal samples. Left, n = 316 samples from 160 vaginally delivered babies detected with Bacteroides. Right, n = 290 samples from 154 vaginally delivered babies with the low-Bacteroides profile (defined in ‘Classification of babies with the low-Bacteroides profile’ in Methods).
