This weekend I added distribution charts for a variety of aggregations from microbiome data ( End Products, matches to Published Medical studies for conditions, uBiome metabolites, select ratios reported in the literature). This give a much better visualization whether there is a potential issue or not.
I followed that up with distribution charts for all of the taxa in the uploaded samples. Some taxa produce ‘sweet curves’ and others indigestion to someone that likes graphical elegance.
Sweet Genus Allisonella
One of many ugly: order Neisseriales
Togging the charts between actual value and log(value) often reveal a lot more about the behavior of a bacteria. Look at genus Roseburia. Two very different inflection points (change of behavior) appears — depending on how you look at it.
