Microbiome Data Simulation

Bioconductor version: 3.16

Microbiome time series simulation with generalized Lotka-Volterra model, Self-Organized Instability (SOI), and other models. Hubbell's Neutral model is used to determine the abundance matrix. The resulting abundance matrix is applied to SummarizedExperiment or TreeSummarizedExperiment objects.
