I am looking to draw histogram plot of the relative abundance of bacterias in my 10 samples. I have the taxonomy barplot qzv file and I can download the CSV file from it. Can you please tell me what are the values in this CSV file mean? Thanks
The rows are your samples. The columns are your taxonomy (likely labeled with a letter prefix depending on the level you’re working at (for instance, class Bacillus might be
c__Bacillus), and then your sample metadata.
Thanks @jwdebelius, What do the numbers mean for each sample ? Do those numbers mean relative abundance of that bacteria in samples?
What I’m seeing is absolute counts, so that would be my guess.
thanks @jwdebelius; its helpful. @thermokarst @Nicholas_Bokulich, I would really appreciate your comments on this too. thanks!
There is nothing else to say, @jwdebelius provided excellent answers.
