Longitudinal analysis at higher taxonomy level

Hi all,
I’m trying to perform a longitudinal analysis following the tutorial.
Basically I got different treatments, each one with its own baseline.
I got to the end of it, but the results seems not to be significant (in particular for pairwise-differences and pairwise-distances).
My question is: is it possible to perform the same test using different taxonomical levels?

Many thanks

Absolutely. Use qiime taxa collapse at different levels. Then use that feature table as input to your methods of interest.

Good luck!

Hi Nicholas,
Thanks you, did not realised before that the collapsed data may be used on the diversity plug-in (but without phylogenetic results!)
