How to choose which samples to download?

Raw data and summary data show 16S and metagenomes data. To generally study cancer-gut microbiome association, 16S data are sufficient or we should use metagenomes data?
In total, I noticed we have 178 files in 16S, while we have 1338 files in metagenomes data. Is one file from 16S from one sample/participant? How to match those 1338 files in metagenomes data to each sample? Thanks!

Hi @yingliu3 ,

Please refer to the metadata file to get the additonal detailed information on the 16s and metagenomes data here (https://ibdmdb.org/tunnel/products/HMP2/Metadata/hmp2_metadata.csv).
