Calorie restriction prevents age-related changes in the intestinal microbiota

The degree of association between microbial taxa abundance, age, and diet. Using ordinary least squares (OLS) linear model, the t-statistic for each coefficient is plotted for the microbial phylogenetic classes: Bacteroidia, Bacilli, Clostridia, Verrucomicrobiae. There is a significant negative correlation between the age and diet t-statistic.
