Some taxa now have Modifiers

These were determined by the “Friend-or-Foe” analysis. This was done by examining which pairs of bacteria increase or decrease with a strong relationship (correlation). If something like Walnuts causes my friends to increase, then it will likely cause me to increase as a side effect. If Melatonin causes my friends to decrease, then it will likely cause me to decrease.

A video showing how we get this data

These were generated only for taxa that had:

  • No direct citations
  • No direct citations for the parents (only done when there are no direct citations)
  • No direct citations for the descendents (only done when there are no direct citations)

In short, no information. The logic being used is simple, we infer only when we have no data. Only the top 10 influences are used.

In terms of displays:


Inferred will usually be the only item listed for those below
