Disease markers webpages

A marker taxon refers to a genus or species that showed significantly differential abundances between two different groups (e.g., cases vs. controls or different disease stages such as adenoma vs. CRC) using LEfSe (Linear discriminant analysis effect size) PMID: 21702898 .

Marker taxa were identified on a per-project basis for curated projects .

Please consult the 'identification of disease markers in curated projects' webpage for more details .

In total there are three types of webpages for disease markers, which are explained in details below.

All disease markers

This page lists all markers identified in GMrepo in a table:


  • Users can use the widgets on top of the table to search and filter the table.
  • Users can click any of the taxon names to view more details, including associated disease(s) and their abundance alterations (i.e., enrichment or depletion) in disease samples as compared with healthy controls, or in samples of different disease stages.
