Rhea: R scripts for the analysis of microbial profiles

The Rhea pipeline is a set of R scripts that encode a series of well-documented choices for the downstream analysis of Operational Taxonomic Units (OTUs) tables, including normalisation steps, alpha- and beta-diversity analysis, taxonomic composition, statistical comparisons, and calculation of correlations. Rhea is primarily a straightforward starting point for beginners, but can also be used as a framework for advanced users who can modify and expand the tool.
