Microbiome Helper is a repository that contains several resources to help researchers working with microbial sequencing data:

  • A series of scripts that help process and automate various microbiome and metagenomic bioinformatic tools.
  • Workflows or standard operating procedures (SOPs) for analyzing 16S/18S rRNA and metagenomic data.
  • Tutorials with test data, example output, and questions for different microbiome analyses.
  • A Virtual Box image that can be used to run our workflows and tutorials with little or no configuration.

You can use the sidebar menu to navigate the wiki.

Note that the scripts and workflows are continually being updated.

These scripts were produced by the Integrated Microbiome Resource. It is important that you cite the tools that are wrapped by our scripts. Also, our paper on Microbiome Helper has been published in mSystems. Please cite this paper if you use our repository:

All older scripts (prior to February 2020) can be found in the v1.0 release here.
