metaphlan2 website  

MetaPhlAn2 is a tool for profiling the composition of microbial communities from metagenomic shotgun sequencing data.

Environment Modules

Run module spider metaphlan2 to find out what environment modules are available for this application.

System Variables

  • HPC_METAPHLAN2_DIR - installation directory
  • HPC_METAPHLAN2_BIN - executable directory
  • HPC_METAPHLAN2_DOC - documentation directory
  • HPC_METAPHLAN2_UTI - utils directory
  • HPC_METAPHLAN2_EXE - example directory
  • METAPHLAN_BOWTIE2_DB - reference database directory

Additional Information

There have been cases where metaphlan tries to download the latest database before running. The latest database (mpa_v30_CHOCOPhlAn_201901) is available at $METAPHLAN_BOWTIE2_DB, therefore, to skip the database update step, the following needs to be specified in the script:

--index mpa_v30_CHOCOPhlAn_201901 --bowtie2db $METAPHLAN_BOWTIE2_DB
