UMGAP Case Studies
This page explores several uses of the Unipept MetaGenomics Analysis Pipeline.
The Unipept Metagenomics Analysis Pipeline (UMGAP) is a tool for mapping (short) metagenomics reads to taxa, rivalling state of the art alternatives such as Kraken (2014) with the additional benefit of species level identification. UMGAP achieves this by transforming the mapping task into a metaproteomics problem by using various alternative gene predictors on the metagenomics reads and processing the resulting data with the existing Unipept Metaproteomics Analysis Pipeline. Each step in UMGAP is highly configurable.
