Validating Suggestions

A reader found a bug for low levels of bacteria. To empower readers to be able to check the basic logic being used, I created this post (after fixing the above bug caused by a misplaced minus sign).

Sometime people ask “Are the suggestions reasonable?”

  1. Go to http://microbiomeprescription.azurewebsites.net/labs/definition?key=L
  2. Change one to HIGH i.e.  Burkholderiaceae [family]
  3. Click on it to see what impacts it, http://microbiomeprescription.azurewebsites.net/Library/Details?taxon=119060&taxname=Burkholderiaceae%20[family]
    v1
  4.  Click on Submit
  5. Examine the suggestions, do they agree?
    v2
  6. Repeat with a LOW amount — do they agree

v3

Bottom Line

One of the goals of the rework was to consolidate the suggestions logic into a single piece of code that will be used everywhere. It means that quality assurance becomes less manpower intensive.
