In the Resources section of The Microbiome portal you can find a selection of third party open resources and big projects related with the microbiome all over the world. We know that this is not an exhaustive selection and we think to go adding more resources day by day. Each resource includes a short description done by members of the Era7 Bioinformatics' team.
