Functional and Taxonomic Profiling of MAGs

These tools allow users to examine the genetic potential of a community and investigate the strain frequencies of subpopulations in those communities.



These apps take metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) as Genome objects input.

See Metagenomic and Community Analysis for an overview of metagenomic workflows.


A demo Narrative, Groundwater MAGs from Tian et al., 2020, provides an example of the workflow using MAGs from Tian et., Small and mighty: adaptation of superphylum Patescibacteria to groundwater environment drives their genome simplicity. (doi: 10.1186/s40168-020-00825-w).

  • This Narrative was created and made public by Alexey Kazakov, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

The public tutorial Narrative Metagenome-Assembled Genome Extraction from a Compost Microbiome Enrichment provides guidance on a related workflow for creating MAGs.
