PCA Principal Coordinate Variables

Hi everyone,

Is there a way to know what variable is being used to describe the variability in each of my PC points? Like the taxa possibly that is PC1,2,3?

Thanks,
Zach

Hello @Zach_Burcham, this is not currently possible with principal coordinates analysis alone. To achieve what you are looking for you would need to produce a biplot. These are currently not supported in QIIME2, but will soon be supported (this is not a hard deadline but I am hoping to finalize some details on this matter in the next month). There’s a ticket on GitHub here.
