  1. In “Regulative effects of curcumin spice administration on gut microbiota and its pharmacological implications”, I don’t understand some of the increase/decrease descriptions. Eg “The abundance of Rikenellaceae also increased significantly, from 7.96% to 4.73%” but 7.96% to 4.73% is a decrease, isn’t it? Or did they mean it was an increase and the percentages were the wrong way around?

    Still very interesting though!

    • Yes, you are correct; that appears an error. The percentages also do not seem to match those shown in Figure 2A – and the legend key is plotted in the opposite order as the plot. Those are things that should have been picked up during peer review.
