From: Metagenomic analysis of ancient dental calculus reveals unexplored diversity of oral archaeal Methanobrevibacter

Fig. 3

Differences in microbial taxonomic profiles between ancient and modern calculus and Methanobrevibacter abundance in dental calculus. A Phylum abundance (%) in ancient and modern calculus. Phyla that are statistically different between the two tissues are marked with asterisks (*p ≤ 0.05, ****p ≤ 0.0001). B Differences in genera between ancient and modern calculus (LEfSe) [43]. C Species-level principal coordinate analysis of the β-diversity (Bray-Curtis distances) of all ancient and modern calculus samples showing the abundance of Methanobrevibacter. Previously published ancient calculus from [5, 6, 11, 13, 31] and modern calculus from [13] were used in the analysis
