Comparison of module completion patterns in humans and human gut microbiomes from 13 healthy individuals.A: Typical pathway modules showing remarkable differences in the module completion ratio appeared among human gut microbiomes from 13 healthy individuals. B: Typical pathway modules possessing complementary relationships between humans and human gut microbiomes in the module completion ratio. C: Typical pathway modules for which the completion ratio in the human gut microbiome is very low in contrast to that in humans. Green letters show rare modules completed by less than 10% of 768 prokaryotic species described in Figure 3. Detailed information of the 13 individuals has been previously described . Alphabet in parentheses shows the patterns of completion profile based on the module completion ratio as shown in Table 1 and Figure 3. A: Universal module, B: Restricted module, C: Diversified module, D: Non-prokryotic module.
