Dufrene and Legendre

Hello everyone,
is there a way to perform Dufrene and Legendre indicator species analyses in qiime2?

Thank you for your support!

From the R package indicspecies:

Indicator species are often determined using an analysis of the relationship between the species occurrence or abundance values from a set of sampled sites and the classification of the same sites into site groups, which may represent habitat types, community types, disturbance states, etc

This sounds like a differential abundance test! There are a lot of ways to test for this...

One way to do differential abundance in Qiime2 is the ANCOM test, as shown here.

Are you looking to find a list of 'indicator species' / biomarkers?
Or do you already have a list of biomarkers and want to analyze them?
