PERFect: Permutation filtration for microbiome data

PERFect is a novel permutation filtering approach designed to address two unsolved problems in microbiome data processing: (i) define and quantify loss due to filtering by implementing thresholds, and (ii) introduce and evaluate a permutation test for filtering loss to provide a measure of excessive filtering.
