Publication of Microbiome analysis software Parallel-META 3

 Metagenome is one of the most important data type in Microbiome research field. Because of the complexity, heterogeneity and exponential growth volume of the metagenomic data, it is an crucial technical bottleneck in interpreting the principle of microbial community structure and function in depth and quickly. Recently, Single-Cell Center of QIBEBT-CAS published a high performance microbiome analysis software Parallel-META 3, which can comprehensively and rapidly decipher the large number of unknown microbiome structure and function, so as to analyze and predict the disease or ecological disaster based on the variation of microbiome big data (Fig. 1).

 The study was published in Scientific Reports and the Chinese Software Copyright (Registration No. 2016SR053280) was also authorized. The Parallel-META 3 software was developed and maintained by the Bioinformatics Group, and supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology 863, Natural Science Foundation of China, Natural Science Fund of Shandong Province.
