Where the new page is – this uses the symptoms entered with the sample’s enzymes computations
  • April 22, Added Probiotics for Symptoms based on KEGG Enzymes (not sample specific – generic), see this post
  • Apr 4-21 Implemented Categoric Logistic Regression to Symptoms for:
    • Bacteria (Taxonomy)
    • Compounds estimated from KEGG
    • Enzymes estimated from KEGG
The page show the odds for increasing or decreasing by over 1690 different significant factors
