Metagenomic & Community Analysis
Running Metagenomic and community analysis in KBase
KBase has a multitude of tools designed to analyze microbial communities and metagenomic reads data. They provide a way to understand the functional interactions between species in microbial communities. Annotated genomes extracted from metagenomic samples can be used for metabolic modeling, comparative phylogenomics, functional profiling, and more.
- Using Metagenomes to Discover Novel Microbial Linages in KBase – demonstrates the application of bioinformatic tools for metagenome assembly and genome binning. This Narrative highlights the effective use of employing multiple genome binners and a bin optimization approach.
- Metagenome-Assembled Genome Extraction from a Compost Microbiome Enrichment – demonstrates an in-depth example of metagenome-assembled genome extraction and analysis to obtain high-quality genomes.
- The PlantSEED Resource in KBase – shows the streamlined process of annotating plant genome sequences, automatically constructing metabolic models based on genome annotations, and using models to test annotations.
