Metagenomics

Biome-Shiny: Automatic, interactive plots to visualize environmental diversity | 28/Nov @ IGC Open Day Universities

Metagenomics is a branch that processes large quantities of biological data, extracted directly from an environment. In order to derive useful information from this great volume of data, it is necessary to make use of informatics support, which, in turn, implies to a need to know how to use various tools and programming languages, and the need to develop tools to simplify the data analysis. Biome-Shiny is a tool created to bridge the gap between traditional Biology and Bioinformatics, providing a user-friendly interface to visualize microbiome data, allowing any user to generate and export interactive plots and tables, without needing to understand the background code.
