Plot (A) shows the number of species found in each sample as a function of the number of paired-end reads down-sampled from the full data set. The number of species reported in each data point corresponds to the average number of species over 10 randomly resampled data sets (restricted to species detected at an abundance >0.01% in the sample, based on the logic that very rare species are more likely to represent assignment errors). In each random re-sampling, we down-sampled the number of reads and re-ran the subsampled sequences through the MetaPhlAn 2.0 pipeline to obtain a count of the number of species represented in each down-sampled data set. Plot (B) depicts a parallel analysis to (A), but limited to the 327 most prevalent species in our data set.
