Alpha-diversity estimations are similar for control and cirrhosis groups. Intra-sample bacterial species diversity and richness were evaluated through the calculation of six different metrics. Results are presented as box and whisker plots per group (control and Schistosoma japonicum infection-induced liver cirrhosis—SLC—plots in red and blue, respectively) and per metric as follows: a Observed species; b Chao index; c ACE index; d Shannon index; e Simpson index; f Good-coverage index. No significant differences were detected between the groups. SLC, S. japonicum infection-induced liver cirrhosis
