NestedAnova

Applies a tested anova.

Use a nested anova if you have a nested experiment design " Handbook of Biological Statistics. Example: Measure the impact of a treatment on lab animals in different cages, with treatment as primary group and cage as nested group.

In the nested anova, the "primary group" (3rd column of meta data file) is used as group (e.g. treatment), the secondary group (5th column of meta data file) is used as subgroup (nested group). Standard error is shown as error bars. Only sign. differentially abundant bacterial groups are displayed. Pair-wise comparisons are done by t-test and annotated as *: p<0.05, **: p<0.01, ***: p<0.001.


RankTestPlot

Sample groups are compared by non-parametric rank test (Wilcoxon rank test for datasets with 2 groups and Kruskal-Wallis test for datasets with more than 2 groups). Significantly differentially abundant bacterial groups are shown as bar chart. Pair-wise comparisons are done by Wilcoxon rank test. Significant differences are annotated by *: p<0.05, **: p<0.01, ***: p<0.001

AnovaPlot

Significantly differentially abundant bacterial groups are shown as barchart (p < 0.05, ANOVA). Standard error is depicted as error bars. Pair-wise comparisons are done by t-test and annotated as *: p<0.05, **: p<0.01, ***: p<0.001

GlobalCommunityComp

Compare global community profiles. Intra-group distances are compared to inter-group distances by Wilcoxon rank test. The respective p-values are depicted in the figure "P-values intra/inter group distances". Additionally median distances and median Pearson correlation between community profiles are shown.
