cogent3 Python APIs for IQ-TREE and GraphBin via a Plug-In Architecture

Project cogent3 Python APIs
Funding Cycle 5

Proposal Summary

To enhance metagenomic analysis by integrating cogent3, GraphBin and IQ-TREE to support innovative genomic technologies for monitoring the impact of viral and bacterial diversity on human health.


cogent3 Python APIs

To monitor the impact of bacterial and viral diversity on human health, scientists must use a variety of computational tools. Software is often either presented as an application, which is accessible to non-expert users, or as a library, which can tackle larger datasets but requires more expertise. This project will develop a library interface to two existing applications fundamental to the analysis of metagenomic data, GraphBin and IQ-TREE, through integration with cogent3.
