Donors’ microbiota and alterations in the patients’ faecal and mucosal microbiota before and after faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) treatment. a The average microbial composition in faecal samples (see panel d for bacterial groups). Donors’ microbiota shown as average from all time points. b Principle component analysis (PCA) from genus level bacterial groups in faecal samples; donors’ samples in dark blue, patients’ pre-FMT samples coloured red and post-FMT samples coloured turquoise. c Microbial diversity in faecal samples measured from patients and donors (average from all time points), statistical significance from other time points indicated with an asterisk. d The average microbial composition in patients’ mucosal samples. e PCA from genus level bacterial groups in patients’ mucosal samples, pre-FMT samples coloured red (patients with one sample n = 13 and patient P3 with 2 samples, see Additional file 1: Table S1) and post-FMT samples (patient n = 11) coloured turquoise. f The fold change of genus level bacterial groups was significantly different in the pre- and post-FMT mucosal samples. d Phylum level taxonomy
