philr: Phylogenetic partitioning based ILR transform for metagenomics data

PhILR is short for Phylogenetic Isometric Log-Ratio Transform. This package provides functions for the analysis of compositional data (e.g., data representing proportions of different variables/parts). Specifically this package allows analysis of compositional data where the parts can be related through a phylogenetic tree (as is common in microbiota survey data) and makes available the Isometric Log Ratio transform built from the phylogenetic tree and utilizing a weighted reference measure.
