Questions about rarefaction

rarefaction

(Toan Hong) #1

I was also wondering why some body are against rarefaction step before analysing microbiome data (Paul J.M and Susan H., 2014). Because I think in a lot of cases, it is really useful to remove rare otus which might affect to the results.

May I ask how much sampling depth i should use to rarefy the data?

Cheers,
