Table 3 PERMANOVA analysis of the factors affecting the swine gut microbiome (multivariate models). Data were analyzed using R program Vegan package. Samples from nursery, growing, and finishing stages in the test study were used to perform PERMANOVA analysis with two sequential orders: diet, age, gender, sow origin, and PigID (a); NDF, crude fiber, crude protein, crude fat, age, sow origin, and pig ID (b)
