Figure 1
Figure 1 Ecological and metagenomic analysis. A: Number of readings for each sample using the 16S massive sequencing technique in GS Junior. See methods section for details. B: Principal components analysis. The control samples and Crohn’s disease are observed in well-defined groups. The data was selected with the Ribosomal Project database using a maximum e-value of 10-5, a minimum identity of 75%, and a minimum length alignment of 15 bp. PC: Principal components; CD: Crohn’s disease sample.

Figure 5 Functional analysis of the microbiota. Significant differences (P < 0.05) in biosynthesis and glycan metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, lipid metabolism, catabolism, digestive system, amino acid metabolism and immune system were found. C: Control sample; CD: Crohn’s disease sample.
