  1. “o,” “f,” and “g” denote taxonomic levels of order, family, and genus of the taxa, respectively. The balance (ratio) of the abundances of the bacteria in the numerator divided by the denominator works as a microbial signature that had a strong predictive power for the corresponding bile acids in this table
