The sequence search is designed to enable users to search for samples that contain the presence of a particular sequence.
The Similarity Cutoff will determine what level match is required to consider sequences conserved
The search results initially compare the occurrence of the sequence samples with the full background dataset. Enrichment is also calculated to facilitate identification of potentially biologically relevant relationships. The options are found under "Detection Conditions"
The "Prevalence Distribution" option displays all the samples in which the sequence of interest was detected. This graph provides quantification by sample. Hovering the mouse over the individual samples will provide further metadata associated with the samples
The "Co-occurring Species Coverage" option allows identification of shared community structure between samples containing the sequence of interest. This display is similar to the display described in the comparison search tutorial.
