Can we do pairwise adonis test in qiime2

Hi all,

I have a quick questions. Can we do pairwise adonis test in Qiime2.
I have ran the adonis test for my data, but did not get the pairwise results.
I got ht epairwise result from the beta-group-significance test.

Thank you!!

No. If you want the pairwise test results, run beta-group-significance. It is the same test under the hood — PERMANOVA — so you can relate it back to your adonis test results.


Hi @Nicholas_Bokulich,

Thank you so much for your quick reply.
Do you mean that the pairwise PERMANOVA result equal to the one-way pairwise adonis test results?

Thank you!!

Yes. You could filter your feature table to only contain each pair of interest and run adonis with a single factor and yes you should get more or less the same result as the pairwise beta-group-significance tests (though adonis and beta-group-significance are two different implementations of permanova so may give slightly different results).


Hi @Nicholas_Bokulich,

Thank you so much for your clarification!!
