To find the best fit distribution for the absolute abundance of species present in my dataset


I wanted to find the distribution of the species level absolute abundance in my data. Can I use the estimated number of reads value obtained from the output of rel_ab_w_read_stats as the read count for the species? Thanks in advance

Hi @Syama_K
Thanks for getting in touch. Yes, you can use the rel_ab_w_read_stats output to estimate the number of reads in your sample assigned to each of the reported species.
