(Version 1.0.0)


What is MicrobeGPS?
-------------------

MicrobeGPS is a bioinformatics tool for the analysis of metagenomic sequencing
data. The goal is to profile the composition of metagenomic communities as 
accurately as possible and present the results to the user in a convenient
manner. One main focus is reliability: the tool calculates quality metrics for
the estimated candidates and allows the user to identify false candidates
easily.

For more information about MicrobeGPS, including detailed description of the
underlying methodology, performance evaluation and use case examples, please
have a look at our publication [not yet available].
