β-diversity in the gut microbial community of rats with or without prenatal valproic acid (VPA) exposure. a Clustering analysis based on Bray-Curtis similarity. Bray-Curtis similarity matrix based on square-root-transformed abundance at an OTU level. b Principal component analysis (PCA) based on Bray-Curtis similarity generated using the Vegan package in the R program. Control: rats without prenatal VPA exposure (N = 11). VPA: rats with VAP exposure (N = 10)
