I really need your expertise to help me with this question :
Actually I'm wondering if it is possible to perform functional analysis on 16S rRNA Gene Metabarcoding data.
You can't perform functional analysis on 16S rRNA gene, but you can use the 16S rRNA genes to predict the functional potential.
Please have a look into the following Biostars post which includes some tools and the respective repos and papers: Is it possible to predict functional profile of microbiome through 16S rRNA gene amplicon-based sequences?
I hope this helps,
thank you very much !!!
