Natural microbial communities have been studied for decades using the 16S rRNA gene as a marker. In recent years, the application of second-generation sequencing technologies has revolutionized our understanding of the structure and function of microbial communities in complex environments. Using...
Biology is being inundated by noisy, high-dimensional data to an extent never before experienced. Dimensionality reduction techniques such as principal component analysis (PCA) are common approaches for dealing with this onslaught. Though these unsupervised techniques can help uncover interesting...
