Figure 5

Nasopharyngeal microbiota is similar to neighboring body parts, but distinct from gut and oral cavity. Principal coordinates analysis (PCoA) was performed using the unweighted UniFrac distance matrix using nasal lavage fluid (NLF) samples from pre-inoculation time points. Each sample is represented by a point with NLF (n = 27) in green, gut (n = 45) in dark blue, oral cavity (n = 46) in yellow, external auditory canal (n = 44) in red, nostril (n = 46) in purple, hair (n = 14) in orange, and adenoids (n = 69) in light blue.
