From: Meta-transcriptomics reveals a diverse antibiotic resistance gene pool in avian microbiomes

Fig. 2

Diversity and abundance of antibiotic resistance genes (ARG) in birds foraging in a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) compared with birds from other sites in Australia and Antarctica. Each dot represents a meta-transcriptome library (constructed from 10 samples) and cross bars represent mean values. a Number of antibiotic resistance genes. b Abundance of resistance genes. c Number of antibiotic classes. Differences between groups were assessed with a Kruskal-Wallis test and were found to be statistically significant (p values < 0.05)
