Table 1 Bacteroidetes:Firmicutes ratios

From: Intestinal microbiota mediates Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli-induced diarrhea in piglets

Piglet Control Resistant Diarrhea Recovery Pre-diarrhea
1st - Jejunum 0.18 0.10 0.01 0.05  
2nd - Jejunum 0.13 0.12 0.08   
2nd - Feces 0.50 0.50 0.38   0.42
  1. The intestinal microbiota in the jejunum among controls, resistant piglets, diarrheal piglets and recovered piglets were analyzed using metagenomics (1st, n = 3 before pooling) or using16S rRNA sequencing (2nd, n = 4 before pooling). The microbial diversity in these feces among controls, resistant piglets, diarrheal piglets and pre-diarrheal piglets were analyzed using 16S rRNA sequencing (2nd, n = 4 before pooling)
  2. The ratios of Bacteroidetes: Firmicutes were calculated based on the relative percentage of Bacteroidetes to the relative percentage of Firmicutes
