Hi friends!!! I am analysing data with MOTHUR software. I've gone through the MiSeq SOP. But still I have one confusion. Should I analysis the "control" and the "test" data separately or mix together and analyse at once? I am asking this as i have analysed separately but stucked at the statistical step. Any idea?

You should analyze everything together so the OTUs will be the same. At the end of the process you will have a count table that will include all of the samples and then you could conduct a comparative analysis.

Thank you sir for your fast response. One more query. If I analyse separately, somehow can I merge them and do PCOA and heatmap study?

No, you'll have to run it again. That's a known downside of mothur, methods like dada2 or deblur do allow this.
