Table 3 Results of Random Forest regression and LEfSe to identify OTUs that distinguish the three response groups

From: Variable responses of human microbiomes to dietary supplementation with resistant starch

Comparison Distinguishing microbiota features
  LEfSe Random Forest
Low vs. enhanced None identified [OTU 7] during RS
High vs. low [OTU 4] before and during RS [OTU 4] before and during RS
[OTU 3] before RS
High vs. enhanced [OTU 4] before and during RS [OTU 4] before and during RS
  1. A post-hoc ANOVA analysis revealed that the abundance of OTU #3 was not significantly different between the groups being compared (p > 0.10). Hence, this OTU was not considered further
