The data from Sanger sequencing (FRACS) is broken down into the number of sequences (seq) from each sample (P, D, and V) that were related to a given characteristic (anaerobe, gram positive etc). Also shown are the number of genera that were associated with each of the phenotypic categories. UWB refers to unknown wound bacteria or sequences without significant similarity to database sequences.
