Using OATS test to pick probiotics

This is based on data available using Enzymes produced by the bacteria. Some probiotics may have no information. The intent is to help identify possible probiotics to increase or decrease compounds.

  1. Some probiotics consume (substrate) these compounds
  2. Some probiotics produce these compounds
  3. Blog Post Explaining origin of this feature
  4. Note: It helps to check KEGG diagrams on what compounds feed the process.
