(This post is part of a series of ongoing posts about selected ampvis2 features) Now that the ampvis2 R package has got its own paper on bioRxiv it is a good time to also write a small blog post about our beloved heatmap, which Albertsen lab and the Center for Microbial Communities use in practically every […]

ampvis2: A guide to ordination and how to use amp_ordinate in R
(This post is part of a series of ongoing posts about selected ampvis2 features) A common way for microbial ecologists to compare the microbial communities of different samples is by using ordination methods. These methods seek to highlight differences between samples based on their microbial community composition. By plotting samples as points in an x/y-plane, […]
Analysing amplicon data, how easy does it get?
Ever done amplicon DNA sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene to identify microbes? If so, then you must know about the challenge of analysing such complex data easily. My name is Kasper, and I am currently a master student here at the Albertsens lab. When I first learned how DNA is sequenced today, I was astonished by the rapid […]
