assigned OTUs in relabund file

First of all, thank you very much for a such a good program and also very active helpdesk.

get.relabund gives a good output file, which I can use to plot different samples to see if they cluster together or to estimate if the samples are significantly different. I use this output file in PRIMER to do MDS or PCA analysis.

I was wondering if it is possible to add on the output file best match assignation (for instance, Pseudomonas, Alphaproteobacteria, Actinobacteria, unclassified bacteria), beside OTU1-2 coding, so we can see which species/genus/family… is correlated more with the samples.

Thank you very much.


I think that may make the relabund/shared files get pretty messy, but we’ll think about it. All of this information is also in the cons.otu file as well…
