#' MRexperiment to biom objects
#' 
#' Wrapper to convert MRexperiment objects to biom objects.
#' 
#' @param obj The MRexperiment object.
#' @param id Optional id for the biom matrix.
#' @param norm Normalized data?
#' @param log Logged data?
#' @param sl scaling factor for normalized counts.
#' @param qiimeVersion Format fData according to QIIME specifications (assumes only taxonomy in fData).
#' @return A biom object.
