I analyzed the microbiome sequencing data and got the results from each animal.
But the microbiome composition is different among each animal in the same group. (Individual differences).
How can I adjust that difference?
For example, Mice 1(Group A) / Firmicutes (%) : Pre-treatment : 70% -> 1day after treatment : 50% -> 3 day after treatment : 30% (Decreased until 3 days)
But Mice 2 (Group A) / Firmitues (%) : Pre-treatment : 60% -> 1day after treatment : 60% -> 3 day after treatment : 70%. (Increased until 3 days)
Both Mice 1 and 2 are involved in the Same group but they have a different trend.
Is there a good method to adjust that value? I don’t think the mean value of those Mice 1 and Mice 2 is the correct value.
