DairyFMBN v2.1.4 includes a selection of records from FoodMicrobionet v 3.2 with studies on the microbiota of milk, fermented milks, cheese, starter cultures and dairy environments. The data are accessible via a Shiny app whose manual is included. Changes over version 2 of DairyFMBN: a. there are 54 studies in this version (4 more than in the previous version) b. now the Taxa table in the aggregate tab allows direct access to NCBI taxonomy, LPSN and Florilege (http://migale.jouy.inra.fr/Florilege/#&welcome) c. includes an improved version of the Shiny app d. incorporates changes to the taxa table, which is now aligned to SILVA taxonomy (https://www.arb-silva.de/documentation/silva-taxonomy/). This has become necessary to improve compatibility with new accessions to FoodMicrobionet, which now assigns taxonomy based on SILVA v138. The app and the database can be used to carry out meta-studies on the bacterial microbiota of dairy foods, as described in Parente E., Ricciardi A. Zotta T. (2020).
