LEA is the search engine for microbial community structures.
We applied several machine-learning techniques to a dataset containing >30,000 sequenced 16S rRNA gene amplicons from a public database MicrobeDB.jp,
and created the tool to explore the microbiome universe and to place your metagenomic data on the universe like a Global Positioning System.
For details of the function, please check HOW-TO-USE page.
New WebGL-based, better, faster, stronger version is available. Press START to activate LEA Global Map.
The original (SVG-based) version of LEA described in the paper is available here. (highly recommended to use Google Chrome)
