DMB stands for Data Mining Big.
The DMB System is a collection of data analysis tools.
It is an implementation of a set of algorithms for automatic classification.

Because our applications are particulary efficient and accurate for classifying.

The DMB format uses the standard CSV style (CommaSeparated Values).
The first row of the file contains the names of the samples (they must be all different). The second row contains the class name to which the sample belongs to.
The first column contains the feature name (the variable of the experiments). The second column describes the variabile type: NUM, if it assumes numerical values, or ORD, if it assumes values from finite set of elements.
Here is an example:
Exp 1  Exp 2  Exp 3  Exp 4  
class  A  B  A  B  
Gene 1  NUM  1.50  0.42  0.70  1.05 
Gene 2  NUM  1.00  1.40  0.70  0.65 
Pos 1  ORD  A  T  G  T 
Pos 2  ORD  A  A  C  A 
What is the input format of BLOG?

The input format of BLOG is standard
FASTA format file with the barcode sequences.
The second field of the description line should contain the specimen class. For instance: >EM1232squalus edmundsi.....

Can I customize the DMB methods in more detail?

Sure, feel free to contact us for customized data analysis at DMB mail.
Why does it take so long to obtain results?

Maybe our servers are busy. Please be patient. Take a coffee, the results will arrive soon..
I don't understand the algorithms!

Read the system description carefully. Check your input!
Otherwise contact us at DMB mail.
