The microbiomeutilities is a supporting R package for the parent microbiome R/BioC package. This utility tool includes functions for formatting and visualization of phyloseq object. The package has a function
microbiome_pipeline, which generates an HTML report with infromation on preliminary QC, Alpha Diversity, Ordination and Composition analysis of OTU tables. The HTML report can be convenient for having prelimanry insights into the data.
Example output of the
The package provides access to a subset of studies included in the MicrobiomeHD database from Duvallet et al 2017: Meta-analysis of gut microbiome studies identifies disease-specific and shared responses. Nature communications. These datasets are converted to phyloseq objects and can be directly used in R environment.
Depending on the real world usefulness, practicality and success, we plan to include complete or parts of this package in the Microbiome R package. "Leo Lahti, Sudarshan Shetty et al. (Bioconductor, 2017). Tools for microbiome analysis in R.
The microbiome R package relies on the independently developed phyloseq package and data structures for R-based microbiome analysis developed by Paul McMurdie and Susan Holmes. ggplot2 H. Wickham. ggplot2: Elegant Graphics for Data Analysis. Springer-Verlag New York, 2009. tidyverse packages.

NOTE: The aim of this package is not to replace any of the other tools mentioned on this site. Instead this package is useful for a quick and (not so) dirty analysis of the OTU tables/biom files generated by tools such as QIIME (the newer QIIME2) (Caporaso, Kuczynski, Stombaugh et al., 2010), Mothur (Schloss, Westcott, Ryabin et al., 2009), DADA2 (Callahan, McMurdie, Rosen et al., 2016).
