Try for example

?GlobalPatterns

to access the documentation for the so-called “GlobalPatterns” dataset.

Run provided examples

You can also try the examples included with the example data documentation (as well as examples for functions/methods) using the standard example command in R – in this case the examples for the enterotype dataset.

example(enterotype, ask=FALSE)
## 
## entrty> data(enterotype)
## 
## entrty> ig <- make_network(enterotype, "samples", max.dist=0.3)
## 
## entrty> plot_network(ig, enterotype, color="SeqTech", shape="Enterotype", line_weight=0.3, label=NULL)
