I was wondering how to visualize taxa bar plots that are grouped by a column in my metatable (e.g. intervention_group) instead of sample_id (first column of my metadata table). I was looking through the forum and am having difficulties finding an answer (I’m sure this is a simple request but I am new to qiime :)) . I am able to see taxa-bar-plots successfully for individual samples but I can’t figure out how to see it by intervention_group. I think I have to create another/modified metadata table? Or do I indicate a column in my current metadata table to serve as the sample-id (if so, how?)? Thanks in advance for any help with this.
This is the command line I used to visualize taxa-bar-plots using on qiime2-2020.11
