Gut microbiota composition. The composition of the main families present caecal microbiota in chicken. The sum of the appropriate families as indicated in the figure legend provides information on the microbiota distribution at the phylum level. Taxonomy summary and microbial diversity of the operational taxonomic units (OTU) from caecal samples collected at 7 days post inoculation from broiler-type (BT) and layer-type (LT) birds fed with either broiler feed (bf) or layer feed (lf), which had been C. jejuni-inoculated at 1 day post hatch (n = 6 per group). “con” = C. jejuni-free control, “C. jejuni” = C. jejuni-inoculation. (Figures were generated from raw data but when we produced the figures from normalized data, these were essentially the same. We therefore used maximal data available for each sample in this figure)
