a Relative abundance of bacterial phyla in different gut sections preserved under different methods. b Relative abundance of the ten most common bacterial genera (accounting for a total of 88.5% of sequences in the data set) across compartments and preserved under different conditions. Each column represents different gut sections from an individual. U = unclassified genera within the given taxon
