Recent advances in sequencing technology combined with an interest in testing ecological theory developed for macrobes requires that we develop a robust set of statistical tools to describe and compare microbial communities. Our goal is to develop a set of tools so that our ability to address interesting questions is limited by our imagination and not our computational resources.

Welcome to the mothur wiki,
the one-stop source for your computational microbial ecology needs.
315 articles


Welcome to the website for the mothur project, initiated by Dr. Patrick Schloss and his software development team in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at The University of Michigan. This project seeks to develop a single piece of open-source, expandable software to fill the bioinformatics needs of the microbial ecology community. We have incorporated the functionality of dotur, sons, treeclimber, s-libshuff, unifrac, and much more. In addition to improving the flexibility of these algorithms, we have added a number of other features including calculators and visualization tools. If you would like to contribute code to the project feel free to download the source code and make your own improvements. Alternatively, if you have an idea or a need, but lack the programming expertise, let us know and we'll add it to the queue of features we would like to add. Our current goal is to release a new iteration of the project monthly.

Do you have a chunk of data that you don't know what to do with? We are happy to put together subcontract quotes to meet your needs. Email Pat to get the conversation started.
