To help users getting started with MetaMed quickly, here is the example-based tutorial for MetaMed usage.
Example 1. Finding Equivalent Medicine information of a query microbe
Enter the queried microbe name in English. Noted that MetaMed requires to exactly match the genus of the given microbe name. If not matched, it will return no search result.
Currently only one BGC in the database match the search criteria and it is returned on the results page:
Example 2. Using Personalized Sequence Data to predict BGCs and linking to their potential implications for personalized predictions
MetaMed preprocesses human microbe sequencing data (16s rRNA or WGS) and obtains the corresponding BGC profile. Frist chose the sequencing data type in "WGS" or "6s rRNA"
If you already have the BGC profile of your sequencing data, past them into the input box as the example format in tab-delimited type: <BGC name> tab <read coverage/percentage value>. Noted that there is a "tab" instead of "space" to separate two input entities.
If not, please press the "Link to Metapipe" button, which links to Metapipe GitHub page. Follow the instruction and run Metapipe for personalized sequencing data preprocessing. Then users can paste the processed BGC profile result into the input box.
The top BGCs in the database match the example search criteria are returned on the results page:
