Dysbiosis score

Hi IBDMDB staff,

I have read Lloyd-Price et al., 2019 where you compute a dysbiosis score. This is based on shotgun metagenome data, not 16S data ?

In the MaAsLin2 tutorial, the HMP2 demo metadata contains the dysbiosis score. However I can not find it in the IBDMDB metadata file. Is there a specific reason for this ? Could it be possible for you to still add this metadata variable ? If not, how can we as IBDMD users compute the dysbiosis scores ourselves ?

Thank you,
