|Taxonomic comparison for 3 main bacterial taxa between frozen and RT samples|
|Taxon||F*||RT3h*||RT24h*||RT2w*||p value F vs RT3h||p value F vs RT24h||p value F vs RT2w|
|Prevotellaceae;uncultured;human gut metagenome||7||6||5||3||0.6804||0.3189||0.0140|
Statistical analysis was performed using Poisson regression model. * Values are mean proportion of sequences (%). p-value < 0.05 is considered significant; n = 4 subjects; F = frozen; UF1h = unfrozen during 1 h; UF3h = unfrozen during 3 h; RT = room temperature; 2w = 2 weeks; Taxonomy is indicated at the genus level and if not possible at the family level.
