NG-meta-profiler: A bioinformatics tool for fast processing and functional profiling of metagenomic samples

Metagenomics consists of studying complex microbial communities by sequencing the genomes of the organisms that compose them. The samples may come from different ecosystems, such as the intestinal tract, soil or oceans. NGLess-profiler is a bioinformatics tool that allows processing massive sequencing data obtained from these communities, and easily generate abundance profiles of the organisms present in each sample, as well as the biological functions represented in their genomes.
