I have some output from summary.shared that I either don’t understand or indicates there is something wrong with my data or Mothur. I ran the following command and everything looked fine on the surface.
Upon closer inspection, there were several thetayc values that were not bracketed by the corresponding confidence interval - e.g. the first two lines of the output read:
label comparison thetayc thetayc_lci thetayc_hci
0.03 Abidjan.534R Aleppo.534R 0.724870 0.263177 0.287082
I am wondering how the confidence interval for the estimate, 0.72, can be (0.26, 0.29). Am I misinterpreting the headers, or does this indicate some problem with my data? Any insights would be appreciated. I can work up a small, reproducible example if that would help.
I’m running version 1.28.0
