Paired analysis of paired samples (samples collected from the same individual).
Examples: Study the effects of drug treatment on the gut microbiota or monitor the composition of microbial communities over time. Secondary groups are compared, e.g. before and after treatment. Or the composition of the microbiota at different locations of the same individual, e.g. microbiota of the small intestine versus large intestine.
|G1 and G2||The two secondary groups to be compared in the paired analysis.|
|Index||Diversity index used by the diversity scatter plot ("DiversityScatter").|
|Test||Statistical test used for the paired
analysis, e.g. paired t-test or pairedWilcoxon rank test.
|Sample IDs||Show sample IDs in scatter plots.|
|Legend||Show figure legends.|
|Taxa||Taxa/OTU shown in taxa scatter plot ("TaxaScatter").|
Scatter plot of community diversity. Each dot represents the diversity of one individual at two selected secondary groups (G1 versus G2).
Scatter plot of OTU/taxa abundance. Each dot represents the abundance of the selected OTU/taxa of one individual at two selected secondary groups (G1 versus G2). Taxa/OTUs can be selected via the "Taxa" drop-down menu.
Differences in OTU/taxa abundances are shown as bubble plot.
P-values and false discovery rate for paired statistical analysis (paired t-test or paired Wilcoxon rank test).
