[…] identifications with their compound classes were integrated into a sqlite ( database, which is available as supplemental data . for statistical analysis we used the r script “metabr” (ernest et al., ), which calculates the fold-changes and p-values according to tukey's honest significant difference (hsd)., the r package and graphical user interface (gui) “rattle” […]

[…] [,]. statistical analysis of metabolomic data was performed using an analysis tool that we developed specifically for metabolomic data analyses (ernest et al., manuscript in review). the script (metabr), written in the language r, uses linear mixed-effect modeling to normalize metabolomics data containing both fixed- and random-effect confounding variables. the script averages any replicate […]
