analysing samples from different datasets

Hi there,sample-metadata.tsv (18.5 KB)

I am currently running an analyses on samples from different studies (so different datasets). I have put all the information from all the 4 studies into one metadata.
I have been going though the moving pictures tutorial, but have just realised that it doesnt make sense to look at each of the datasets separately. I guess the whole purpose of my investigation is to look at the differences in microbial abundance and richness in cucumbers from different studies.
Is there a way to do this?

Cheers,

Lily
