I am having some confusion with my ANCOM results. From my understanding, the clr is like the fold-change and the 100% abundance shows the counts in each group. I would expect if I have group A and B then anytime I have more counts in A than B I would obtain either positive or negative clr’s consistently. But in my data set, I have two significant taxa that are both higher in group A than B, but one of them gives a negative clr while the other gives a positive clr. How is this possible? Do I report these taxa as being more abundant in group A based on the percentile abundance or do I report one as more abundant and the other less since the clr’s are positive and negative even though the percentile abundace says both are more abundant?
