MGX - Flexible metagenome analysis

Metagenomics, the analysis and interpretation of environmental community sequence data, is one of the most challenging bioinformatics fields due to the computational requirements that are needed to analyse large data volumes as they are produced by current sequencing technologies.


We would like to get your feedback about MGX. Please take a few seconds to fill out our survey.


The MGX project aims at the design and implementation of a novel analysis platform for metagenomics data, which i.) provides the necessary infrastructure to cope with the large amounts of sequence data and ii.) offers easy mechanisms for the inclusion of novel algorithms into the platform.

The platform features analysis capabilities employing state-of-the-art methods, statistics and high-quality result visualizations, thereby enabling researchers to easily obtain answers to their scientific questions.
