MicrobiomeDB is a data-mining platform for interrogating microbiome experiments, and is part of the VEuPathDB family of NIAID Bioinformatics Resource Centers. You can explore their curated database of microbiome datasets, and if you create an account, you can also upload your own biom file for visualization, analysis and comparison with MicrobiomeDB's studies - see the MicrobiomeDB FAQ.
Once you have a MicrobiomeDB account, you can directly transfer your Nephele results to your MicrobiomeDB workspace using the "Analyze results with MicrobiomeDB" link on the pipeline results page for your completed job. Alternately, you can upload the Nephele biom file yourself through the My Data Sets form on MicrobiomeDB.
The following Nephele pipeline biom files have the necessary metadata to be compatible with MicrobiomeDB's analysis tools:
For best comparison of your data with the MicrobiomeDB 16S datasets, we recommend using Nephele's DADA2 pipeline with the SILVA taxonomic database, as these are the tools MicrobiomeDB has used for sequence analysis.
