Convert Abundance Table to Experiment

This tool has been deprecated and will be retired in a future version of the software. It has been moved to the Legacy Tools (Image legacy_tools) folder of the Toolbox, and its name has "(legacy)" appended to it. The functionality of this tool has become obsolete as you can now run statistical test on the abundance table as is using the tools Differential Abundance Analysis and Create Heat Map for Abundance Table.

To run the Convert Abundance Table to Experiment (legacy) tool, go to:

        Toolbox | Legacy Tools (Image legacy_tools) | Convert Abundance Table to Experiment (legacy) (Image convert_otu_to_experiments_16_n_p)

Choose an abundance table as input, and define which metadata group is to be considered as factor.

The tool outputs a table labeled (experiment). The first column is the name of the group used as factor in the analysis (its taxonomy and an ID number). For each feature (e.g. an OTU, an organism, a Pfam family or a GO term) there will be the following data:

You can create a sub-experiment by selecting only some of the features from your experiment table (the most abundant ones for example).
