metadata and distance matrix order to run beta-group-significance

I would like to know if the order of my samples in my distance matrix should be the same as in my metadata to run beta-group-significance. Thanks!

Hi @nnasp,

Welcome to the forum!

The order does not have to be the same. The function uses labeling in the samples to match them automagically :sparkles:, so it's not a concern in :qiime2:.

Great! thanks!
Does it extend to other commands as adonis?

Hi @nnasp,

Yes, it extends to all statistical tests in the core distribution and should work with plugins as well.
