"PeerJ Preprints" is a venue for early communication or feedback before peer review. Data may be preliminary.

Supplemental Information

Table S1: Simulated gene expression data for a microbial community with two member species

Expression values for 50 genes of each species are given. For simplicity, the expression values are all identical. The expression values for each gene are identical for site 1/condition 1 and site 2/condition 2, however they have been skewed based on different species abundances.
