Furnishes a collection of candidate taxa that corresponds to the chromatogram peaks. T-RFPred sorts terminal-restriction fragments (T-RFs) generated by T-RFLP by taking advantage of the wealth of 16S rRNA gene sequence data. It is based on in silico simulation of the digestion of reference sequences. This tool assists users to estimate the most appropriate restriction enzyme(s) to use when designing experiments to evaluate community structure.
Builds predictive dynamic models of microbial communities. HMB_Taxa Pipeline is a systematic modeling and experimental application to dissect the microbial interactions shaping the assembly of a synthetic community. This generalized parameter estimation method is composed of 12 diverse species spanning major phyla of the human gut microbiota including Bacteroidetes, Firmicutes, Actinobacteria, and Proteobacteria.
