Figure 2:

Shotgun sequencing data sourced from MG-RAST and manually binned into various oceanographic regions of the world.

(Top) Relative abundances (using annotation e-value of 10−8) of fungal genera. Numbers across the top of histogram bars denote the number of datasets used in the analysis. Numbers at top of histogram do not match the total number of databases analyzed, as many samples had no fungal sequences remaining after subsampling. GOM is Gulf of Mexico. (Bottom left) Rarefaction curves showing the number of fungal genera detected as a function of the number of fungal sequences analyzed before database normalization. (Bottom right) Genera-based non-metric multidimensional scaling (NMDS) spatial analysis with indicator taxa displayed, illustrating overlapping, similar fungal communities.
