MLTreeMap is a tool that employs full maximum likelihood to give insights into phylogenetic and functional properties of metagenomes and the underlying microbial communities. It does so by detecting and phylotyping a series of relevant marker genes on the submitted DNA fragments. Among these genes are protein coding phylogenetic markers, SSU rRNA genes and markers for important functional pathways. MLTreeMap is available as a web-server and as a stand-alone version.
The UniProt Metagenomic and Environmental Sequences (UniMES) database
is a repository specifically developed for metagenomic and environmental data. Currently, unimes.fasta.gz contains only data from the Global Ocean Sampling
Expedition (GOS). Clustered sets (unimes_cluster100 and unimes_cluster90)
of UniMEs sequences at two resolutions (100% and >90%) are also available.
