You're right, that would be a killer addition to mothur!

generalized UniFrac distances

Post by wtaheri » Tue Mar 25, 2014 2:33 pm

Could we get the Chen version of the generalized unifrac into mother? I think it's the most up to date.
It's described in Chen et al. Associating microbiome composition with environmental
covariates using generalized UniFrac distances. 2012. Bioinformatics. (28) 16. pages 2106–2113
doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/bts342.

Thanks!

We'll add it to the docket of future features.

Hi Patrick, looks like it's been a while since you replied to this request. I was wondering whether a generalized UniFrac calculator is still on your to-do list. Thanks!

Admittedly, it's probably very far off. We have found that building trees from large datasets is next to impossible. Further, we have yet to find a case where OTU-based methods give different results from phylogenetic methods.

Sorry!
Pat
