The microbiome project collects source code for molecular ecological studies. This emerging code base is provided freely under the FreeBSD open source license.

Tools and source code

We host several R packages suited for microbial ecological studies. See the full list of R packages at the Github site.

The microbiome R package includes various standard routines for analysing microbiomics profiling data.

A collection of practical reproducible examples with source code is available via the microbiome vignette.
