Taxonomy

Convert OTU tables into relative abundance taxa tables

1) OTU's annotated by the same taxa are merged and converted to relative abundances
2) Relative taxa abundances are visualized as bar plots
summarize_taxa_through_plots.py -i OTU/otu_table_mc2_w_tax_no_pynast_failures.biom -o Taxa/ -m metadata.txt

Or, to get only relative abundance tables (1) without additional visualization (2)
summarize_taxa.py -i OTU/otu_table_mc2_w_tax_no_pynast_failures.biom -o Taxa/

Results


1) Relative abundance taxa tables
Taxa tables as .biom and .txt format for different taxonomic levels.
