Amplicon-Based Analysis

In the Amplicon-Based Analysis folder you will find tools for analyzing amplicon data.

With OTU Clustering and accompanying OTU tools, you can cluster reads at e.g. 97% similarity, into so-called Operational Taxonomic Units (OTUs).

Detect Amplicon Sequence Variants offers a higher resolution alternative. It uses error profiling to distinguish biological nucleotide differences from sequencing errors.

Template workflows for amplicon-based analysis are available at:

        Toolbox | Template Workflows (Image workflow_group) | Microbial Workflows (Image mgm_folder_closed_flat_16_h_p) | Metagenomics (Image wma_folder_open_flat_16_n_p) | Amplicon-Based Analysis (Image otutools_open_16_n_p)
