power of mann-whitney test

I've written in last post about two groups of data (case-disease) that need to be compare. This time I don't have binary data but variable data. Example below:

Sample bacteria1 bacteria2 bacteria3
s1 0.5 0.7 0.1
s2 0.03 0.02 0.9
s3 ...


I have 100 samples with disease and 100 samples as control.

To compare the differences between 2 groups (case-control) I've decided to use Mann-Whitney test. But first I would like to predict the sample size for this test with power=0.8 and alpha=0.05. Do you know how can I do that? Is there a tool that can calculate the required sample size for experiment for Mann-Whitney test?

• Which effect size do you want to detect (in terms of $P(X_{case}>X_{control})$)? – Knarpie Mar 1 '17 at 10:30
