Donut Graph

What is a donut graph?

A donut graph is a circular visualization of the organisms identified, shown one taxonomic level at a time.

Why use it?

The donut graph is useful for visualizing the relative amounts of each organism in your sample.

How to use it

You can select different values to use for the donut graphs:

Relative Abundance - Click on “relative abundance” to use relative abundance for the donut visualization.
Abundance Score - Click on “abundance score” to use abundance score for the donut visualization.
% Others - Enter a number in front of %others to group more or fewer organisms into the “others” category. This is useful if you have many lower abundance organisms and you would like to get a better view of the higher level calls.


To export your donut graph, click on "Export" in the top right corner of your browser and select "PNG" or "SVG".
