Microbiome Differential Abundance Simulation

Bioconductor version: 3.16

A toolkit for simulating differential microbiome data designed for longitudinal analyses. Several functional forms may be specified for the mean trend. Observations are drawn from a multivariate normal model. The objective of this package is to be able to simulate data in order to accurately compare different longitudinal methods for differential abundance.
