  1. Specific microbial genera were associated with olfactory function subcategories: discrimination, threshold and identification. Only those genera that appeared at least at two conditions, or their correlation was found based on several OTUs are shown. Number of diamonds in the columns reflect number of associated OTUs (table with full information of associated OTUs is given in the Supplementary Table 3). Normosmic score was defined as ≥6.25 for threshold, ≥10 for discrimination, and ≥11 for identification (see methods section). Microbial taxa associated with with olfactory function subcategories are defined using LEfSe (Linear discriminant analysis Effect Size43) algorithm.
