Recent advances in DNA sequencing technology have enabled rapid advances in our understanding of the contribution of the human microbiome to many aspects of normal human physiology and disease. A major goal of human microbiome studies is the identification of important groups of microbes that are predictive of host phenotypes. However, the large number of bacterial taxa and the compositional nature of the data make this goal difficult to achieve using traditional approaches. Furthermore, the… CONTINUE READING
