Generalized UniFrac Distances and Distance-Based Multivariate Analysis of Variance

Implementation of generalized UniFrac distances for comparing microbial communities and three extensions to the PERMANOVA procedure. The three extensions are: (1) PERMANOVA using the Freedman-Lane permutation scheme; (2) PERMANOVA omnibus test using multiple matrices; and (3) Analytical approach to approximating PERMANOVA p-value.
