Welcome to the PICRUSt2 website! Here you will find descriptions of the scripts, installation instructions, and workflows. See the right side-bar for details.
PICRUSt2 includes these and other improvements:
- Allow users to predict functions for any 16S sequences. Representative sequences from OTUs or amplicon sequence variants (e.g. DADA2 and deblur output) can be used as input by taking a sequence placement approach
- Database of reference genomes used for prediction has been expanded by >10X.
- Addition of hidden-state prediction algorithms from the
- Allows output of MetaCyc ontology predictions that will be comparable with common shotgun metagenomics outputs.
- Inference of pathway abundances now relies on MinPath, which makes these predictions more stringent.
PICRUSt2 wraps a number of tools to generate functional predictions from amplicon sequences. If you use PICRUSt2 you also need to cite the below tools.
