Normalizes counts based on total counts per sample, then uses log-linear-hybrid transformation on the data.
OTU counts table. Rows: samples, columns: OTUs.
numbers of colums containing OTU counts.
count threshold to transition from linear to log transform.
With 'zero.na=TRUE', the original zero count datapoints become 'NA' (useful for analysis of pairwise correlations between OTUs).
A table of transformed normalized values.
