Within the order Actinomycetales, the most common families were Actinomycetaceae (n = 73), Corynebacteriaceae (n = 59), and Nocardiaceae (n = 53) (online Appendix Table 1, wwwnc.
Fourteen clusters with up to 9 members were seen in the family Nocardiaceae, 12 clusters with up to 12 members in Actinomycetaceae, and 9 clusters with up to 10 members in Corynebacteriaceae.
They also found an inverse relationship between the prevalence of the Staphylococcaceae family of bacteria, whose members include important pathogens like Staphylococcus aureus, and Corynebacteriaceae and Propionibacteriaceaea families, whose members are more commonly benign commensals.
