New Service: Predictive functional profiling of microbial communities using 16S rRNA data launches a new bioinformatic service: We now offer predictive functional profiling from your 16S rRNA data. This aproach links taxonomy information from 16S rRNA gene data to functional information (e.g., metabolic pathways) inferred from closely related taxa with sequenced genomes. Predictive functional profiling is a powerful and cost-efficient alternative to shotgun metagenomics, especially with samples of well-characterized microbiomes, such as from the human gut. It offers new insights into functional aspects of the thousands of uncultivated microbial communities for which only marker gene surveys are currently available.
