A new bioinformatics tool called “EzMAP” is developed for the easy analysis of the microbiome . EzMAP stands for an easy microbiome analysis platform.
EzMAP is a user-friendly platform allowing users to perform microbiome analysis from raw sequence processing to downstream analysis. It provides a graphical user interface for easy access to different functionalities of QIIME2 (Quantitative Insights Into Microbial Ecology). EzMAP generates easy-to-understand reports and intermediate output files that can be used in other analyses.
Downstream analyses include relative abundances, differential abundances, community comparison, and functional prediction . The users can download the features, taxonomy, phylogenetic tree, representative sequences, and assignment files.

Most widely used tools for drug-drug interaction prediction
Drug-drug interaction is an important method in bioinformatics, especially in the case of treatment of serious diseases such as cancer. It tells us about the drug effect modified by another drug. In this article, we summarize a few useful tools for drug-drug interaction prediction. (more…)
