Taxonomic profile of human microbiome at EzBioCloud.net

EzBioCloud 16S database provides a comprehensive taxonomic backbone of Bacteria. Here we applied the sophisticated bioinformatics pipeline for the large dataset of U.S. human microbiome project, which allows us to recognize major bacterial inhabitants of our body.

  • Data source: U.S. NIH human microbiome project (http://hmpdacc.org/)
  • NGS platform: Roche 454
  • Sequencing regions of 16S gene: various
  • Human subjects: 242 healthy adults sampled at 15 or 18 body sites
  • Bioinformatics pipeline used: ChunLab’s microbiome taxonomic profiling (MTP) pipeline described more details at here.
  • The number of samples used in the calculation:
Body sites Samples
1 Anterior nares 433
2 Attached Keratinized gingiva 545
3 Buccal mucosa 536
4 Hard palate 502
5 Left Antecubital fossa 280
6 Left Retroauricular crease 458
7 Mid vagina 216
8 Palatine Tonsils 563
9 Posterior fornix 216
10 Right Antecubital fossa 284
11 Right Retroauricular crease 487
12 Saliva 487
13 Stool 574
14 Subgingival plaque 558
15 Supragingival plaque 575
16 Throat 520
17 Tongue dorsum 570
18 Vaginal introitus 244
Total 8048

Statistics used:

(Example of the genus Bacteroides)

Mean occurrence (%):  Mean occurrence of the taxon, calculated from all samples
Max occurrence (%):  Maximum occurrence found among all samples
Samples found (%): Portion of samples in which the taxon was found
