func_dat: Metagenome functional dataset

Description Format References Examples


Example input data for TaFur, taken from Phillips et al. (submitted). func_dat is a metagenome functional dataset relating metagenome functions to microbiome community members to sample occurrences. func_dat is output from metagenome functional predictions following Langille et al. (2013), but similarly formed data from other inference or shotgun seuqencing approaches can also be used.
