  1. Principle coordinates neighbour matrices (PCNM) were used as potential explanatory values of distance between CF centres. Var. Exp (%) the percentage of microbiota variation explained by a parameter given the redundancy analysis. P(adj) adjusted significance value following false discovery rate correction. Clinical status is stable or in treatment for acute pulmonary exacerbation
