MEGAN is a tool for studying the taxonomic content of a set of DNA reads, typically collected in a metagenomics project. MEGAN is suitable not only for DNA reads (metagenome data), but for RNA reads (metatranscriptome data), peptide sequences (metaproteomics data) and 16S rRNA data (amplicon sequencing) as well.


The DOE Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) is a next generation platform for Systems Biology and Bioinformatics. KBase provides a number of workflows (genomic analyses, metagenomic analyses, RNAseq, GWAS, etc.) all integrated into a single platform with a single programmer’s interface.


MG-RAST is a web based analysis and integration platform for metagenomic data with over 80,000 data sets (http://metagenomics.anl.gov). This tutorial will briefly introduce the MG-RAST pipeline and the web interface and focus on using the MG-RAST API for analysis. The majority of the tutorial will focus on using R (a statistical language) to analyze metagenomic data after processing with MG-RAST.
