• Introduction
  • Meta-Storms is a metagenomic database system toolkit to systematically and efficiently organize and search metagenomic data. It includes the following components: (i) creating a database of metagenomic samples based on their taxonomical annotations, (ii) efficiently indexing all samples in the database based on taxonomical structures, and (iii) searching for a metagenomic sample against the database by a fast scoring function based on quantitative phylogeny. Meta-Storms also has modules to efficiently manage the database, which is especially useful when the database is huge.

    The new version 1.2 is released now.

    The GPU-Meta-Storms version 1.0 is released now

  • Input pre-computation
  • The input samples should be pre-computed by Parallel-META of which the results could be visuallzed by Meta-See.
