Talk:Summary.shared

Page was updated to reflect the current output that is given with release 1.4.1 as well as to generally clean up and clarify the shared.summary result file. Note that currently, the group names of the pairwise comparisons are shown in two columns as opposed to being concatenated as seen in the sharedmultiple.summary file. This results in the calculator labels being shifted one column to the left of their corresponding data in the shared.summary file only.--mcnelson.phd 11:58, 7 August 2009 (EDT)

I feel that having the first column being labeled "label" is misleading. These are distances, they were initially determined from a distance matrix. This would make describing the results file clearer as well as remove confusion generally as to what the column represents. --mcnelson.phd 11:58, 7 August 2009 (EDT)


Actually, the label title fits and is more general than a distance heading. A user can create a shared/list file using anything they want (trflp data, phylotypes, etc) not just distances. --Pat Schloss 20:34, 7 August 2009 (EDT)
