A package for planning and analysis of amplicon metagenomics research projects.
The goal of the
metacoder package is to provide a set of tools for:
Standardized parsing of taxonomic information from diverse resources.
Visualization of statistics distributed over taxonomic classifications.
Evaluating potential metabarcoding primers for taxonomic specificity.
Providing flexible functions for analyzing taxonomic and abundance data.
To accomplish these goals,
metacoder leverages resources from other R packages, interfaces with
external programs, and provides novel functions where needed to allow for entire analyses within R.
The full documentation can be found online at http://grunwaldlab.github.io/metacoder_documentation.
There is also a short vignette included for offline use that can be accessed by the following code:
