Correlation value!

The correlation value obtained with various R packages and the correlation value obtained with “MicrobiomeAnalyst” are different.

Moreover, “Positive” and “Negative” are also different. We recommend not performing correlation work in “MicrobiomeAnalyst”. There is a problem.

Developers, please listen to my story.

Please provide more details on this. Two comments:

  • The correlation analysis is part of the workflow (after filtering, normalization, etc). In general, you won’t get the same values if you compute the correlation directly from your data (which is NOT a good practice).
  • The underlying MicrobiomeAnalystR package is on the GitHub. You can see all the underlying R code.
