I am working with profiled metagenomic taxonomy abundance data. I want to generate beta diversity (bray-curtis) boxplot from a phyloseq object where two groups (control and test) will be shown. Something like this figure:

enter image description here

How can I make it? Can anyone share any code or tutorial?

Thanks, dpc

You could convert the phyloseq object to a dataframe and just plot it using base R or ggplot2. I'm not exactly sure what the bray curtis df will be called but you can access it using the @ notation then convert with data.frame e.g.

bray_for_plot <- data.frame(phylo_obj@bray)
