Microbiota profiling methods are greatly enhancing our insights into the microbial diversity and taxonomy of many different types of environments and ecosystems. These techniques are provided by an extensive array of sophisticated software such as Mothur and QIIME. Whilst many of these applications have graphical user interface (GUI), providing access to these technologies for the research or clinical scientist remains complex.
We have developed a Galaxy workflow for the analysis of metagenomics data using the Mothur suite of tools, incorporating Phinch and Krona for visualisation.
We demonstrate our work using a previously published 16S rRNA gene dataset.
