Precise phylogenetic analysis of microbial isolates and genomes from metagenomes

Project description


PhyloPhlAn is an integrated pipeline for large-scale phylogenetic profiling of genomes and metagenomes. PhyloPhlAn is an accurate, rapid, and easy-to-use method for large-scale microbial genome characterization and phylogenetic analysis at multiple levels of resolution. PhyloPhlAn can assign both genomes and metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) to species-level genome bins (SGBs). PhyloPhlAn can reconstruct strain-level phylogenies using clade-specific maximally informative phylogenetic markers, and can also scale to very-large phylogenies comprising >17,000 microbial species.



You can install PhyloPhlAn using conda as follows:

conda install -c bioconda phylophlan


You can clone the PhyloPhlAn repository from GitHub:

git clone
cd phylophlan
python install

Then remember to check that the Dependencies and Tools are in stalled and available in your system.



We provide support through the bioBakery help forum and through the issues tracking system of the PhyloPhlAn repository.
