In this part of the tutorial you will learn how to plot and interpret microbiome data based on the
Try our examples:
Mammalian gut data set.
Upload the data and disable data filtering and normalization. Then
>> Proceed to
Stacked bar/area plot.

Now plot the relative abundances of the phyla present in the mammalian gut samples and compare the barplots of the absolute and relative abundances.
Apply this normalization and compare the three diet groups.
