Advance Access JCVI Metagenomics Reports Application Note
A significant JCVI informatics development is JCVI Metagenomics Reports, an open source Web 2.0 application designed to help scientists analyze and compare annotated metagenomics data sets. Users can download the application to upload and analyze their own metagenomics datasets.
METAREP has just been published in Bioinformatics (08/26/2010) as an open access article. The publication is currently accessible under the Bioinformatics Advance Access model. The PDF version can be downloaded at
Supplementary information includes the METAREP data model and an overview about its search performance accessible at
One of METAREP's key features that distinguishes it from other metagenomics tools is that it utilizes a high-performance scalable search engine that allows users to analyze and compare extremely large metagenomics datasets, e.g. datasets produced by the Human Microbiome Project.
If you like to learn more about METAREP and talk to the developers, join us at Human Microbiome Research Conference in St. Louis in Missouri (August 31 - September 2, 2010). We will present METAREP the first day of the conference at 10:35am (see agenda).
We would like to hear from you. If you have questions or feedback or if you wish to contribute to the METAREP open source project please send an email to email@example.com
