Figure 7

Relative abundance of selected genera in nasal microbial communities. The method of swab collection is indicated on the x-axis: collected in the study center = C; collected at home = H. Only samples that had a perfect match in participant age and sex were considered (54 samples each). Statistically significant differences in genus abundances between samples taken at home by study participants (H) and by certified study personnel at the study center (C) were calculated by the Mann Whitney U test, *p < 0.05; ***p < 0.001. Median values are indicated by the horizontal lines.
