code Question 2

Simulating data tables ranging treatments (A, B, C, D) varying in terms of relationship between them with respect the treatment A.

Raw Dataset

Raw dataset from

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0038071714002570 used to address the first question of the paper:

" does the increasing number of correlated columns within an entire data table affect the Procrustes results?"

X raw dataset is the soil fertility, Y raw dataset represents soil microbial community (PLFA analysis)
