MetaPhlAn/ MetaPhlAn v2
MetaPhlAn (METAgenomic PHyLogenetic ANalysis) is a computational tool for profiling the composition of microbial communities from metagenomic shotgun sequencing data, produced by the Huttenhower lab at Harvard.
MetaPhlAn2 is v2 an update to MetaPhlAn which can identify specific strains and track strains across samples for all species.
