GraPhlAn / Graphical Phylogenetic Analysis

A tool for compact and publication-quality representation of circular taxonomic and phylogenetic trees with potentially rich sets of associated metadata. GraPhlAn was developed primarily for microbial genomic and microbiome-related studies in which the complex phylogenetic/taxonomic structure of microbial communities needs to be complemented with quantitative and qualitative sample-associated metadata. It is composed by two Python modules: one for drawing the image and one for adding annotations to the tree. GraPhlAn exploits the annotation file to highlight and personalize the appearance of the tree and of the associated information. The annotation file does not perform any modifications to the structure of the tree, but it just changes the way in which nodes and branches are displayed. GraPhlAn has been developed as an open-source command-driven tool in order to be easily integrated into complex, publication-quality bioinformatics pipelines. It can be executed either locally or through an online Galaxy web application.

ASAR / Advanced metagenomic Sequence Analysis in R

Allows users to select, aggregate, and visualize metagenomic data. ASAR enables researchers to develop a meaningful view of their data. The software consists of a main panel with seven tabs and a control panel, which provides a set of parameter selectors for controlling the displayed tab content. It can perform taxonomic and functional analyses simultaneously, by subsetting and aggregating abundance data at various levels of taxonomic and functional hierarchies.

Elviz / Environmental Laboratory Visualization

forum (1)
An interactive web-based tool for the visual exploration of assembled metagenomes and their complex metadata. Elviz allows scientists to navigate metagenome assemblies across multiple dimensions and scales, plotting parameters such as GC content, relative abundance, phylogenetic affiliation and assembled contig length. Furthermore Elviz enables interactive exploration using real-time plot navigation, search, filters, axis selection, and the ability to drill from a whole-community profile down to individual gene annotations. Thus scientists engage in a rapid feedback loop of visual pattern identification, hypothesis generation, and hypothesis testing.


An open source and web browser enabled tool with a versatile command line interface that allows researchers to perform rapid exploratory investigations of 3D visualizations of microbial community data, such as the widely used principal coordinates plots. EMPeror includes a rich set of controllers to modify features as a function of the metadata. By being specifically tailored to the requirements of microbial ecologists, EMPeror thus increases the speed with which insight can be gained from large microbiome datasets.

CoVennTree / Comparative weighted Venn Tree

Simultaneously compares up to three multifarious datasets by aggregating and propagating information from the bottom to the top level and produces a graphical output in Cytoscape. The underlying concept of CoVennTree is to bring information from the leaf level up to the root node while maintaining the properties of the content of every dataset. With the introduction of weighted Venn structures, the amounts and relationships of data associated with different conditions can be correlated and simultaneously aggregated without losing relevant information. CoVennTree has been integrated into the Galaxy ToolShed and can be directly downloaded and integrated into the user instance.

MGAviewer / MetaGenomic Alignment Viewer

A visualization tool for analysis and comparison of mapping data, with a focus on virus and microorganisms NGS data. Compared to current visualization methods, which are often genome browsers, our method has unique advantages. MGAviewer does not relay on a web server or a heavy relational database, which are expensive to maintain and update. This visualization tool solely uses a web browser, so it is platform-independent and requires no software installation. It analyzes mapping data from a local computer and it can be much faster than web-based genome browser for interactive use. Due to these features, this tool can be very easily applied by individual labs for their routine analysis of mapping data.


A GUI-based comparative metagenomic analysis application which implements a correlation-based graph layout algorithm that not only facilitates a quick visualization of the differences in the analyzed microbial communities (in terms of their taxonomic composition), but also provides insights into the inherent inter-microbial interactions occurring therein. Notably, this layout algorithm also enables grouping of the metagenomes based on the probable inter-microbial interaction patterns rather than simply comparing abundance values of various taxonomic groups. In addition, the tool implements several interactive GUI-based functionalities that enable users to perform standard comparative analyses across microbiomes.
