Metagenomic Intra-Species Diversity Analysis System (MIDAS)

MIDAS is an integrated pipeline that leverages >30,000 reference genomes to estimate bacterial species abundance and strain-level genomic variation, including gene content and SNPs, from shotgun metagnomes.

Environment Modules

Run module spider midas to find out what environment modules are available for this application.

System Variables

  • HPC_MIDAS_DIR - installation directory
  • HPC_MIDAS_BIN - executable directory
  • MIDAS_DB - reference database directory
