Sequencing and analysis of crAssphage regions from around the globe and from all the metagenomes we can find.
This is a repository of DNA sequences, analysis, and other information for the global crAssphage project being developed by Bas Dutilh and Rob Edwards.
Together, we have developed this site as a common resource for everyone to add sequences, get sequences from, and build
alignments and analyses. If you want to become a collaborator and add data to the repository, please contact Rob
Edwards. If you want to just take the data and analyze it, you can clone this whole data set using
git clone https://github.com/linsalrob/crAssphage.git. [Make sure you read the note below about Git_LFS before you do that.]
All of the data here is provided under the MIT License. Basically, you can do whatever you want as long as you include the original copyright and license notice in any copy of the software, source code, data, or other parts of the repository. However, if you use this data or analysis please let Rob know.
Please be aware that Rob and our collaborators are working on a manuscript describing this data, and so please do not use this data as part of a manuscript without asking Rob. We will almost certainly say yes, unless you are writing exactly the same manuscript that we are writing, and in which case we'll invite you to join our team!
Together with our amazing collaborators we have been sampling sites all over the world for crAssphage. We are still looking for more collaborators to provide sequences. Some sites have reported not finding any crAssphage, but not many!
At a couple of locations we have sampled the same sites more than once. This data tells an interesting story.
We have used the awesome Hansel and Gretel to extract haplotypes from metagenomes that contain crAssphage.
Our awesome volunteers have provided samples time and again for us to test to see if they have crAssphage.
Software for the analysis
We have included a list of all the software we used to analyze these sequences in requirements.txt.
We use Git Large File Storage to store some of the large files. You will need to install Git LFS for that to work properly. Its easy to do, and you only need to do it once.
