The within-subject bronchial and peripheral lung microbiota are similar. Taxonomic assignments for all sequences were determined using Greengenes version 13_8, and the relative abundance of each genus is provided by both subject and anatomic site. Each bar represents an individual sample, with color indicating genus-level taxonomic assignment and length indicating relative abundance. White was used to represent taxa with < 1% overall relative abundance. Samples are grouped by subject, with oral samples at bottom, then nasal samples, then bronchial samples, and peripheral lung samples at top. Color assignments are indicated in the legend. Each subject’s lung tissue and bronchial microbiota are similar to each other
