Table 2 The effects of inflammation, antibiotics, outcome, and sample location on the transcriptome and microbiome

From: Associations between host gene expression, the mucosal microbiome, and clinical outcome in the pelvic pouch of patients with inflammatory bowel disease

  Transcriptome Microbiome
  PPI Pouch PPI Pouch
Inflammation score 19% 22% 0% 5%
Antibiotics 0% 0% 41% 2%
Outcome 0% 15% 3% 3%
Location 45%   1%  
  1. This table shows the percentages of the transcriptome and microbiome that are differentially expressed (FDR <0.05) with respect to inflammation score (continuous scale 0–12), antibiotics usage (yes/no), outcome (AP, NP, CP, CDL), and sampling location (pouch or pre-pouch ileum). The microbiome is extensively shifted by antibiotics usage with minor shifts by outcome and location, whereas the host transcriptome is extensively shifted between locations and by inflammation.
