I am currently trying to conduct a study using a cross over model and was wondering if any Qiime-2 plugins would be useful or do I need to use another program such as R. For example, I know that the q-2 plugin can be used for longitudinal analysis and paired sample analyses, but I believe my study design does not fit either of those models. I’ve included a little information on the study to help as well.
The current study involves 10 animals being fed 10 different diets for a week at a time. On a given week, the animals will be assigned one of the 10 diets and then, following a washout period (end of the week), and randomly assigned a new diet. By the end of the study, each animal will have received each of the treatment diets.
From the design, I believe a cross-over model would be best to use and any recommendations on plugins would be highly appreciated!
