The PhyloToAST project is a collection of python code and scripts that modify the QIIME [1] pipeline by adding/changing several steps including: support for cluster-computing, multiple primer support (eliminate primer bias) [2], enhanced support for species-specific analysis, and additional visualization tools.

Installation

To install PhyloToAST from PyPI:

$ pip install phylotoast

Directly from the repository on GitHub:

$ pip install git+http://github.com/smdabdoub/phylotoast.git

From source:

$ python setup.py install

Documentation

Full documentation for the scripts and code is available at docs.phylotoast.org (hosted by Read the Docs)

Requirements

The list of required modules will vary depending on which executable scripts and/or parts of the API you may use. For this reason there are no required dependencies that will be automatically installed along with PhyloToAST. Each executable script will check that the required libraries are installed and will print a message if any are not found.

If you would like to install everything up front, the following is a complete list of libraries that are used in PhyloToAST:

Source

The PhyloToAST source is hosted on github.
