Learn more at https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168160522001684 The ShinyFMBN app allows you to access FoodMicrobionet 4.2, a repository of data on food microbiome studies. To run the app you need to install R and R Studio. Data are available in both R (.rds) and .xlsx format (see below). This compressed folder contains: a. folder R_lists: contains two .rds files containing all data in FoodMicrobionet 4.1.2. FMBN.rds is in a format usable with ShinyFMBN 2.4 (see below) while FMBN_plus.rds contains all tables and fields and is best accessed using custom R scripts (see https://github.com/ep142/ for examples). b. folder xlsx_files: contains all FoodMicrobionet tables in MS Excel format. These files may be useful because the locale of each given system may affect the way some fields containing accented letters are handled during the import of text files. c. folder shiny_FMBN_2_4_3: contains the app folder, the runShinyFMBN_2_4_3.R script (a R script to install all needed packages and run the app) and the app manual in .html format d. FMBNtablespecs_4_2.html describes the table specifications
