Check the [miaverse project]( for details. Tools for the exploration and analysis of microbiome profiling data sets. This R package extends the phyloseq data container. The package is actively maintened but we have discontinued the development and shifted to support methods development based on the (Tree)SummarizedExperiment data containers, see []( for more details. ### Installation and use See the package [tutorial]( **Kindly cite** as follows: "Leo Lahti, Sudarshan Shetty [et al.]( ([Bioconductor, 2017]( Tools for microbiome analysis in R.
