9/24/2021 Batch effects removal for microbiome data via conditional quantile regression (ConQuR) biorxiv.org ... Abstract Batch effects in microbiome data arise from differential processing of specimens and can lead to spurious findings and obscure true signals. Most existing strategies for mitigating batch effects rely on approaches designed for genomic analysis , failing to address the zero-inflated and over-dispersed microbiome data. Strategies tailored for microbiome data are restricted to association testing, failing to allow other analytic goals such as visualization. We develop the Conditional ...
