EzMAP- A New Platform for Microbiome Analysis

Published

on

ezmap

A new bioinformatics tool called “EzMAP” is developed for the easy analysis of the microbiome [1]. EzMAP stands for an easy microbiome analysis platform.

EzMAP is a user-friendly platform allowing users to perform microbiome analysis from raw sequence processing to downstream analysis. It provides a graphical user interface for easy access to different functionalities of QIIME2 (Quantitative Insights Into Microbial Ecology). EzMAP generates easy-to-understand reports and intermediate output files that can be used in other analyses.

Downstream analyses include relative abundances, differential abundances, community comparison, and functional prediction [1]. The users can download the features, taxonomy, phylogenetic tree, representative sequences, and assignment files.

EzMAP is platform-independent and developed in Java Swings, JavaScript, and R programming language. It is freely available to download on Github.
