otu_table-class: The S4 class for storing taxa-abundance information.

Description Details


Because orientation of these tables can vary by method, the orientation is defined explicitly in the taxa_are_rows slot (a logical). The otu_table class inherits the matrix class to store abundance values. Various standard subset and assignment nomenclature has been extended to apply to the otu_table class, including square-bracket, t, etc.



A single logical specifying the orientation of the abundance table.


This slot is inherited from the matrix class.
