Retrieve GrieneisenTS data


Obtain longitudinal gut microbiome data in wild baboons from Grieneisen et al. (2021).





The GrieneisenTS dataset contains 16,234 16S rRNA gene sequencing-based microbiome profiles from 585 baboon samples collected over 14 years to determine the heritability of the gut microbiome on various environmental factors such as diet, age, season. Each baboon had an average of 28 samples collected over 4.5 years. The data set can be used to investigate significance of longitudinal sampling at large sample sizes.

This data set contains the 613 most prevalent taxa with a phylogenetic tree.

Column metadata includes the following fields:

  • sample: Sample ID (character)

  • baboon_id: Baboon ID (factor)

  • pc5_bc: Principal coordinate 5 Bray-Curtis dissimilarity (numeric)

Row metadata of the microbiome data contains taxonomic information on the Domain, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and ASV levels.

The row tree consists of a phylogenetic tree build using sequence information of 613 taxa.

As reference sequences the ASV are provided.
