This tool simplifies the postprocessing and visualisation of metagenomics taxonomic abundance profiles, generated by MOCAT or other processing pipelines. The profiles should be summarized at genus level. Enterotying analysis will be performed (as described in our Enterotyping tutorial), and the resulting PCoA (principal component analysis) projection will be visualised in our interactive 3D scatter plot viewer.
After the initial visualisation, you can limit the enterotyping analysis to a subset of samples. Simply click the 'Selection' button and select one or more sets of samples by click-dragging a marquee rectangle over them. Clicking the 'Zoom on selection' button will redo the analysis and display the updated projection.
