Hi everyone, I started studying MaAsLin2 a short time ago and I would like to ask a questions, please. First, is it possible to use longitudinal analysis with MaAsLin2 with the microbiota as exposure (baseline only) and repeated outcomes? For example, I have microbiota data evaluated at 1 month of life, and infant growth at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months. In this case, for alpha diversity of infant gut microbiota I ran the Linear mixed-effects (LME) regression. But now I need to do it with the abundance of infant gut microbiota e a intend to use MaAsLin2 , byt I don’t know if it’s ok. Another concern is in the case of evaluating growth as an outcome with categorical (data, considering that MaAsLin2 relies on general linear models
Thank you in advance.
