Hi,

I have the following data set and I'm not sure about the correct statistical tool to use - multiple correlation/ANOVA? The values in the dataset represent occurrences (%) of certain gene component to show different characteristics (ABCDEFGHIJK) in bacteria under different experimental conditions. My interest is to show whether there is a correlation in the data between any of the different conditions leading to the observations (ABCDEFGHIJK) and how to implement this in R. My problem is which stat to use to convincingly show that because of the gene components in two or more of the conditions which are well correlated with each other, the observations in bacteria were possible.
