Table 2 Significant differences in the comparison of marine and soil metagenomes. The five most statistically significant differences in numbers of reads assigned to taxon classes in the comparison of marine [19] and soil [18] metagenomes. A positive support (proportion of deviation) indicates that the difference is in favor of the soil dataset, whereas a negative sign indicates the opposite.
