MOCAT: A Metagenomics Assembly and Gene Prediction Toolkit

Figure 1

The MOCAT data processing pipeline.

Metagenomic samples are collected and sequenced. The raw sequence reads are given as input to the pipeline, which are processed by modular steps resulting in metagenome assemblies and predicted genes. Arrows extending to the right from boxes, indicate input to various downstream analyses. Statistics from each step are summarized into multi-sheet Excel documents, as well as queryable SQLite databases.
