Walkthroughs

This guide's walkthrough section includes summaries of analytical approaches used in numerous investigations. Each walkthrough includes a brief description of the analytical approaches used along with a graphical representation of the central workflow. Methodological details that are not related to statistical analyses are largely omitted and readers should consult the original article referenced in each walkthrough. These examples are useful in understanding how and under what circumstances methods described in this guide have been used by others in microbial ecology. A key of symbols used across our walkthrough graphics and a list of walkthroughs are provided below.
