I have 233 genera on one matrix with 46 subjects, and on the same subjects (46), I have like 20 phyla. So, my question, is how can I associate these two matrices of the same subjects and same bacterias just classified by their taxa
I know methods like MDS, or by distances, but is there something else?
Or should I rely on alpha diversity similarities and based on the distances, classify ?
NOTE: I only have the abundance matrices for both the genera and the phylum. I do not have the sequences
