the Metagenomic test for Presence Or Absence of Pathways MetaPOAP is a statistical tool for predicting the likelihood for the presence or absence of metabolic pathways in metagenome-assembled genomes given estimates of completeness and contamination. The background and implementation of MetaPOAP is described in a forthcoming Bioinformatics paper (preprint manuscript and SI). MetaPOAP is provided as three Python scripts. is interactive on the command line, accepts command line arguments, and works with input and output csv files (an example input is provided as test.csv); usage details are provided in the SI of the Bioinformatics paper linked above. If you use MetaPOAP, please cite: Ward, LM, PM Shih, and WW Fischer. MetaPOAP: Presence or Absence of Metabolic Pathways in Metagenome-Assembled Genomes. Bioinformatics, in press.
