Hi, I'm trying to build a mouse microbiome model using micom.
During the process, I got a result from micom.workflows.tradeoff.tradeoff and the result show that as tradeoff value increases, the fraction of taxa growing increases also.
According to the community tutorial, tradeoff value is the rate between high community-level biomass production vs. allowing more taxa to grow. Right?
So, in my opinion, there should be a small number of dominant species with high growth rates in order to get high community-level biomass production and the number of overall growing taxa would be declined.
But my result shows very different aspect. (completely opposite)
I wonder if this result is possible. Because If I did something wrong, I have to do again from the start
I have attached one of the results. And if you need more information, please let me know.
I'll be waiting for the reply. Thanks!
