Correlation between weight gain and relative abundance of Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes. Correlation between weight-gain and relative abundance of Bacteroidetes as calculated by Spearman correlation in cloned pigs (r= −0.33, P<0.04) and non-cloned control pigs and correlation between weight-gain and relative abundance of Firmicutes in cloned pigs (r= 0.37, P<0.02) and non-cloned control pigs (r=0.45, P<0.006). Each color represents a pig in that group i.e. pig 1 is indicated by a red dot and so on.
