PLS-DA in qiime2

I am currently reviewing a manuscript stating “Partial least squares latent structure discriminate analysis (PLS-DA) was performed using Qiime” with no indication of version. Anyway, I was interested in trying this out on my own data but did not find it in any qiime2 documentation. Was this ever part of Qiime or is this an incorrect statement?
Thanks a lot for your help!

Hey there @Stef — we don’t have a PLS-DA method in QIIME 2, but perhaps something existed in QIIME 1? Or, maybe they used a QIIME 2 community plugin that we don’t know about yet?

Thanks for the info :slight_smile:

Uh… :grimacing:

As far as I know, no version of qiime has ever supported PLS-DA. That methods section is lying poorly written.

Very poorly written.

This feels like ‘resubmit with major edits’ to me.

I think the author means using a R package mixOmics for performing PLS-DA analysis.
