I am working with ASV data and I applied a ZINB model to test for significantly different ASVs between Intervention vs Baseline. In the results table I find for example two different ASVs that have the same taxonomic assignment:
ASV 1: Bacteria Firmicutes Clostridia Clostridiales Ruminococcaceae Faecalibacterium NA
ASV 2: Bacteria Firmicutes Clostridia Clostridiales Ruminococcaceae Faecalibacterium NA
I am wondering how to report/name them in a publication.
Is it valid to say ‘Two ASVs of genera Faecalibacterium (and unassigned species) are differentially abundant between intervention and baseline’ ?
Thank you for your help.
