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.
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.
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.
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
