bc_relative_to_absolute - Convert relative abundances into absolute


  bc_relative_to_absolute -input_files     my_communities.generic \
                          -abundance_file  my_counts.tsv          \
                          -output_prefix   my_results


This script reads files containing biological communities and a file of abundance for these communities. The relative abundance of each member is multiplied by the total abundance for its community to obtain the absolute abundance of this member.


-if <input_files>... | -input_files <input_files>...

Input files containing the communities to process. All files must have the same format, which can be one of generic (tab-delimited table), qiime, gaas or unifrac. See Bio::Community::IO for more information on these format.

-af <abundance_file> | -abundance_file <abundance_file>

File containing the total abundance for each community. Each line in the file should be tab-separated and have two columns: community name, total abundance.


-op <output_prefix> | -output_prefix <output_prefix>

Path and prefix for the output files. Several output files will be created if the requested output format can only hold a single community. Default: output_prefix.default
