Options for Feature-table merge and group

Hi all, I have a few questions concerning what some options in Feature-table group and merge specifically do.

Feature-table group:
What does it mean to use sum vs median ceiling vs mean ceiling? I am not clear on what it means by grouping based on “ceiling”. Are there advantages/disadvantages to using either one?

Feature-table merge:
What are the functions of the different overlap methods (error_on_overlapping_sample, error_on_overlapping_feature, sum). They each produce very different sequence counts. Do the overlapping methods filter out features or samples that show up multiple times?

Any detail on these will be appreciated!


Hi @ngilbert! Can you take a look at this post here:

A similar question was just asked earlier today, so maybe these examples will help clear up any questions. Thanks! :t_rex:
