Our tools

The following list features some tools developed at Kostas lab:

ANI: Average Nucleotide Identity calculator
Estimate the distribution of nucleotide identity between fragments of two genomic sequences.
AAI: Average Amino acid Identity calculator
Estimate the distribution of amino acid identity between proteins from two genomic sequences.
ANI/AAI-Matrix: All-vs-all ANI/AAI matrix calculator
Estimate the average nucleotide or amino acid identities between each pair in a collection of genomes (or proteomes).
The Microbial Genomes Atlas - MiGA
Process, evaluate, and taxonomically classify genomes using genome-wide comparisons.
The enveomics collection: A toolbox for microbial genomics and metagenomics
Collection of scripts developed at Kostas lab for microbial genomics and metagenomics, now including a Graphic User Interface.
Nonpareil: Estimating coverage in metagenomes
Estimate the coverage of a Whole Genome Shotgun metagenome and generate projections of sequencing efforts.
ROCker: Accurately detecting functional genes in metagenomes
Accurately identify and quantify target functional genes in metagenomes using data-driven filtering techniques.
MyTaxa: Identifying taxonomy in metagenomic fragments
Assign the most probable taxonomic affiliation of a metagenomic fragment at species, genus, and phylum levels.
imGLAD: in-silico metagenomes for Genome Low-Abundance Detection
Accurate detection and quantification of target organisms in metagenomes
