Abundance file for MaAsLin

Hi,

Is MaAsLin only accept relative abundance as input? Can i use other abundance formula, with the value may range from 0 to several thousand, like RPKM?

Hi @Qiuyu_Jing - unlike MaAsLin 1, MaAsLin 2 does not enforce relative abundance - it can be either count or proportion, and it has multiple statistical model, normalization, and transform options to customize your analysis.
