Principal coordinate plots based on a BC similarity matrix of bacterial community sequence data. Distribution of adenoid swabs, middle ear fluid and nasopharyngeal swabs are shown before (A) and after (B) removal of signal derived from contaminants. Panel A is based on 11 adenoid swabs, 13 middle ear fluid and 11 N swabs, with panel B based on 10 adenoid swabs, 11 middle ear fluid and 11 nasopharyngeal swabs.
