Microbial Metagenomics Mock Scenario-based Sample Simulation tool
M3S3 Sample Simulation tool features
Capable of producing a variety of virtual metagenomics samples on-demand, simulating a spectrum of clinical diagnostics scenarios of varying complexity.
Allows for the use of real FASTQ format sequence reads and FASTA format assembly sequence data as an input for the virtual samples.
User capability to define the abundancy (or ratios) of the sequences composing the virtual sample.
Supports long read platforms, namely Pacific Biosciences and Oxford Nanopore.
Useful for the development, and integration of robust, standardised and reproducible metagenomics analysis software into the clinical microbiology laboratory’s diagnostics workflow.
User-friendly web interface.
M3S3 tool has been validated using relevant clinical microbiological scenarios.
To perform ‘road-testing’ of new metagenomics software and validation of metagenomics pipelines.
