Summary: Microbial community analysis using 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing is the backbone of many microbial ecology studies. Several approaches and pipelines exist for processing the raw data generated through DNA sequencing and convert the data into OTU-tables. Here we present ampvis2, an R package designed for analysis of microbial community data in OTU-table format with focus on simplicity, reproducibility, and sample metadata integration, with a minimal set of intuitive commands. Unique features include flexible heatmaps and simplified ordination. By generating plots using the ggplot2 package, ampvis2 produces publication-ready figures that can be easily customised. Furthermore, ampvis2 includes features for interactive visualisation, which can be convenient for larger, more complex data. Availability: ampvis2 is implemented in the R statistical language and is released under the GNU A-GPL license.
