I can’t make sense of the output of the cooccurrence command based on the page in the manual.
If I run with default settings, I get:
mothur > cooccurrence(shared=Lc.shared)
Initial c score: 3.46011
average metric score: 3.49
standard deviation: 0.00639269
Output File Names:
So the initial score is slightly lower than the average score across null matrices. I’m not sure how to interpret the zscore or assess significance based on the standard deviation. If I run this analysis on multiple datasets, can I compare c score across datasets?
