is there a way to rename groups

I have 4 samples of 16s rRNA sequencing data. I have analysed them using mothur. when i created the stability.files it assigned group names as group_0, group_1, group_2 and group_3.

Is there a way for me to rename the groups, so that I could give a better description based on my sample. I would like to do this so when i look into venn diagram and heatmap output file it would be more helpful with meaningful group names.

Thank you

You could do this by remaking the files file and giving the samples more meaningful names. Alternatively, you could probably use merge.groups where your design file has the current name of the sample in the first column and the desired name in the second.


Thank you. much appreciated.
