Taxon x sample matrix of size 323 x 637
OTU abundances were downloaded from QIITA in Nov 2020 (ID: 2151). Control and non-gut samples, samples with less than 10000 reads, mislabel chance above 50 were also removed. Samples were rarefied to 10000 reads and OTUs were aggregated to genus level. OTUs without a known genus were summed into a garbage taxon named sumUnknown. The resulting genus count matrix has 323 taxa and 637 samples.
