This table provides the identified genera of the bacteria found using shotgun Sanger sequencing (FRACS) in the V sample, the number of sequences corresponding to this genus, the known gram staining properties, the aerotolerance (anaerobic, anaerobic, or facultative anaerobic) nature of the genus, and the shape of the genus. UWB refers to unknown wound bacteria or sequences without significant similarity to database sequences. The asterisk * identifies bacteria previously cultured from a single culture result from each subject's medical record from subjects in the V pool. Bacteria that were cultured and were not found using FRACSS include Acinetobacter, Citrobacter, and Corynebacterium. The % represents the percentage of the total sequences analyzed within the sample.
