New Metaphlan user and fairly new to the Bioinformatics world as a whole. I have run Metaphlan on 60 FastQ files over the past week or so. I then used the merge_metaphlan_tables function to combine the .txt files through a number of steps. I then generated a heat map using hclust2.py. However, I would like to change the order of the columns so that my x-axis displays my fly populations in alphabetical order (selection pressure is in this order) so that I may visualize any obvious differences in species abundance. Is there a capability to do so within Metaphlan?
Thanks, and enjoying Metaphlan so far! The tutorial and resources here have allowed a noob like me to work through a lot of data.
