Paired sample analyses

I would like to analyse the effect of a treatment within a group. I have paired samples from subjects before and after treatment. Is there a way to do this in mothur?

It would probably be best to take your shared or output from summary.single or beta diversity matrix to R and use a specific paired test.


Thanks Pat. Any paired tests you recommend for these analyses?


I’m a fan of the wilcoxon test for most things in the microbiome world where we need more traditional types of statistics
