Kruskall wallis test for alpha diversity comparison (pairwise)


#1

There is a post in this forum which is closed now about the pairwise Kurskal-wallis test in QIIME and the q value is mentioned to be adjusted p-value. Does that mean that we need to use these values instead of the p-value to measure the significance?

Hi!
As I perceive, p-adjusted values should be used because they represent the smallest family error rate unlike the p-values while performing a multiple comparison test for e.g. Kruskal-Wallis test.
