MetaAmp is designed to analyze the amplicon sequence data of the conserved marker genes (e.g. 16S, 18S rRNA) from complex microbial communities. It can cluster amplicon sequences into operational taxonomic units (OTUs) or infer amplicon sequence variants (ASVs). MetaAmp produces alpha and beta diversity based on inferred OTU or ASVs for the the input microbial communities. For the taxonomic marker genes, MetaAmp also assigns taxonomy to each OTU or ASV and generates taxonomic profiles. To facilitate the exploration of the analysis resuts, MetaAmp generates reports in various formats (text, html, accompanying visualizations).
