[…] ch analyzes the structure and function of an active microbial community in a sample. It was developed to analyze large amounts of data produced by sequencing leveraging parallel computing techniques. COMAN (Ni et al., ) is a tool for determining the metatranscriptome through an easy-to-use web interface. The primary purpose of the platform is providing tools for quality control, metatranscripts co […]

[…] in detail an analysis pipeline for prokaryotic datasets. SAMSA [] is also a metatranscriptome analysis pipeline which is mostly suited for prokaryotes because of its use of the NCBI RefSeq database. COMAN [] maps metatranscriptome reads to bacterial reference genomes, and MetaTrans [] assigns a taxonomy based on prokaryotic 16S rRNA.Other studies construct pipelines for subparts of the analysis, […]
