The Unipept web application supports biodiversity and functional analysis of large and complex metaproteome samples and the analysis of peptidomes.
The 4.0 release of Unipept brings functional analysis to the tool.
If you're willing to get your hands dirty, you might of course also send us a pull request!
This application is deployed and fully functional at unipept.ugent.be. If for some reason you wish to run your own instance, you can do so by deploying this rails application and setting up a database. This isn't straightforward and you'll probably want some help, so contact us at email@example.com before you attempt an installation.
A more user friendly way to set up your own Unipept instance is planned for the future. We will probably use docker for this, and release a ready made database as a separate download.
