Table 1 Evaluation of variation between MBRA communities inoculated with different fecal samples by analysis of similarities (ANOSIM, [32]) and permutational multivariate analysis of variance (PERMANOVA, [33])

From: Cultivation of stable, reproducible microbial communities from different fecal donors using minibioreactor arrays (MBRAs)
