Software of interest: MetaMLST: multi-locus strain-level bacterial typing from metagenomic samples

New software/tool of possible interest: Source: MetaMLST: multi-locus strain-level bacterial typing from metagenomic samples Software: http://segatalab.cibio.unitn.it/tools/metamlst/ Abstract: Metagenomic characterization of microbial communities has the potential to become a tool to identify pathogens in human samples. However, software tools able to extract strain-level typing information from metagenomic data are needed. Low-throughput molecular typing schema such as Multilocus …

New open source software: FHiTING – tool for fungal ID from next-gen sequence data

Quick post.  There is a paper out from Jordan Peccia’s lab (authors Karen Dannemiller, Darryl Reeves, Kyle Bibby, Naomichi Yamamoto and Jordan Peccia) of potential interest: Fungal High-throughput Taxonomic Identification tool for use with Next-Generation Sequencing (FHiTINGS) –  The paper alas is not open access so I do not have access to it as I write …
