is an software package (implemented in R and Python 3)
designed to help visualize and interpret community dynamics observed
in microbial ecology experiments that use sequencing count data. Given one inoculum split
into two replicates, one control and one experimental, which OTUs are growing or shrinking
in response to the treatment?
is designed to help account for changes in the control
unit's community composition as well as dampen compositional effects that might occur in
