Fig. 3

The most common AMR gene families and gene allelic variants in each sample. Left panel: the top 20 AMR gene families from effluent, pig caeca and upstream sediment by number of reads (top to bottom), with the top three most abundant highlighted in colour (hue indicates sample type) for comparison with the right-hand panel. Right panel: the most abundant AMR gene allelic variants within these top three most abundant gene families (left to right), sorted by abundance. For more information on the definitions of ‘AMR gene family’ and ‘allelic variant’, see Methods: ‘AMR gene profiling
