Convert Abundance Table to Experiment

Most statistical tools take abundance tables as input, but the ones listed below require an experiment table:

The Convert Abundance Table to Experiment allows you to transform an abundance table into an experiment table, allowing users to use the thus-generated table to perform the statistical tests listed above.

To use the tool, go to:

        Toolbox | Microbial Genomics Module (Image mgm_folder_closed_flat_16_h_p) | Metagenomics (Image wma_folder_open_flat_16_n_p) | Abundance Analysis (Image functional_analysis_folder_closed_16_n_p) | Convert Abundance Table to Experiment (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).
