  1. Compounds detected in the headspace of the skin microbiota samples, but not present or in significantly higher or lower amounts in the diluted samples and control (exponential regression, P < 0.01). Increase in the abundance of compounds is explained by the parameters in the exponential regression model (A + B*(R**X); X = concentration of bacteria). Numbers in last column refer to studies in which compounds were reported previously. All compounds were identified on the basis of matching spectra (NIST library), and verified by injection of standard (except 2-hydroxy-3-pentanone). 1Compounds tested in MM-X traps. RT = retention time. R2 = coefficient of determination.
