	###############################################################################################
	#This function takes a data frame of metabolite abundances and batch information, 
	#calculates mean metabolite abundance per batch, and appends the means to the 
	#bottom of the input data. 
	#
	#Arguments: 
	#
	# metab.col: A character value indicating the name of the variable in the input data set
	#			 that corresponds to metabolite abundance. 
	#
	# batch.col: A character value indicating the name of the variable in the input data set 
	#			 corresponding to batch. 
	#
	# in.data: A data frame containing the variables specified in metab.col, batch.col, and color.col
	#
	# sample.type.name: A character value indicating the type of sample: "Quality Control" or "Experimental"
	#
	# analytical.type.name: A character value indicating whether the data have been normalized. Either 
	#						"Before Normalization" or "After Normalization". 
	#
	# color.col: A character value indicating the name of the variable in the input data set 
	#			 corresponding to a grouping variable (for instance mom vs. baby samples). 
	#
	#Returns:
	#	A data frame of metabolite abundances, with batch specific means appended to the end.
