We hope you find our tutorial useful. It walks through analysis of several 16S colorectal cancer case-control datasets. In addition to a general tutorial for how to go from raw sequences to ASVs, alpha diversity, beta-diversity, visualizations, and statistical results, we also included a short tutorial on implementing percentile-normalization (perc-norm plugin) to correct for batch effects across case-control studies.
