• Introduction
  • Parallel-META is a software toolkit which can perform rapid data mining among massive microbial community data for comparative taxonomical and functional analysis.

    Based on parallel algorithms, Parallel-META can achieve a very high speed compare to traditional metagenomic analysis pipelines.

    Parallel-META now supports 16S & 18S rRNA taxonomical analysis and KEGG based predictive functional analysis for microbial community samples, phylogenetic and functional comparison and feature selection.


  • Sample datasets
  • Here we provide human oral microbial community sampless equenced by 454 Titanium in three different healthy conditions (“B” for healthy baseline, “I” for natural gingivitis and “E” for experimental gingivitis) produced by Huang, et al., 2014.

    Dataset1, 150 samples in total, 3 healthy status;

    Dataset2, 20 samples in total, 2 healthy status.
