I wonder if the Microbiome Analyst has the tool to select the bacterial group (family, genus). Also, can we plot the graph using the average in instead of the individual data. e.g. Treatment 1 (mean of the replicates 1, 2, 3). The output is showing the replicates separately.

Hello, thanks for posing the question. I’m not quite sure about what you mean by the “tool to select the bacterial group”. We have the drop-down menu for Taxonomy level selection. Is that what you are looking for?

I chose the Genus level. However, I would like to eliminate some genus from the list. How can I do that after run the Heatmap?

If these features are your input data, you can edit them in any Spreadsheet program before uploading to our tool; If they are generated during analysis, you cannot edit them via our current web interface. One possible solution is to use MicrobiomeAnalystR / phyloseq R package
