Analysis of each of the six preterm gut community types (PGCT). a Heatmap showing the six PGCTs and the status. Status based on disease or control; Control = pink, DControl = green, PreNEC = blue, and PreLOS = purple. Top 25 most abundant OTUs shown. b Boxplot analysis of the observed OTUs and Shannon diversity showing each PGCT. P values based on the Kruskal-Wallis test show a significant increase in number of OTUs and Shannon diversity in PGST 2. c Boxplot analysis of the eight most significantly distinct OTUs in each PGST. ***Represents a Kruskal-Wallis P value ≤ 0.001
