      I am using a Factorial Correspondence Analysis to study genetic structure of some animal populations. I am using the Genetix software (@ In the 2D FCA when I chose axes 1 and 2 or 1 and 3 the individuals clouds are quite linear because they were stretched by some particular allele associated with few individuals ! whereas when I use axes 1 and 4 I obtain the general trend for most of the studied individuals. Therefore I chose to adopt axes 1 & 4 for the 2D FCA! My problem is that I am writing a paper and a reviewer asked me to explain my choice more precisely and to show that this was the case for other studies or can be done?
      Any help?
