iMetaLab 1.0: a web platform for metaproteomics data analysis

Bioinformatics. 2018 Nov 15;34(22):3954-3956. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bty466.


Summary: The human gut microbiota, a complex, dynamic and biodiverse community, has been increasingly shown to influence many aspects of health and disease. Metaproteomic analysis has proven to be a powerful approach to study the functionality of the microbiota. However, the processing and analyses of metaproteomic mass spectrometry data remains a daunting task in metaproteomics data analysis. We developed iMetaLab, a web based platform to provide a user-friendly and comprehensive data analysis pipeline with a focus on lowering the technical barrier for metaproteomics data analysis.
