Figure 5

Proportion of sequence reads removed by pre-filtration or when identified as contaminants. The proportion of the total number of sequence reads obtained that were removed at the pre-filtering step or after being identified as potential contamination are shown for each of the four sample types. Also shown, the proportion of total sequence reads that were representative of the bacterial signal. Proportions do not sum up to 100% in each sample type as the reads removed as contaminants are shown as a proportion of the filtered reads.
