Balance Trees using Gneiss

Hi folks,

In gneiss plot below, did anyone know what is the light blue and dark blue panels? Do they represent any kind of comparison?

With thanks,
Maysa

Hi @maysa1 there is some documentation in the gneiss tutorials. See here for instance: Differential abundance analysis with gneiss — QIIME 2 2019.10.0 documentation

There are also a few related questions worth following up on. See a couple of examples below

I also have an explanation of balances in this notebook

There is also a youtube video that explains these concepts in the paper.

Briefly the colors denote the numerator and the denominator of the balance. There is a chance that there is a confusion around the concept of balances. So feel free to follow up with the above resources and I can help with interpreting this plot.
