curatedMetagenomicData uses Bioconductor's ExperimentHub to distribute taxonomic and metabolic functional profiles and curated metadata for publicly available human microbiome samples generated by shotgun metagenomic sequencing.

Quick Start

Install curatedMetagenomicData through Bioconductor using BiocManager and open the package vignette. Microbiome profiles and metadata can be accessed from within R or from the command line.
