Abstract :

Metagenomics is the direct genetic analysis of genomes contained with an environmental sample. Metagenomics applies a suite of genomic technologies and bioinformatics tools to directly access the genetic content of entire communities of organisms. The field of metagenomics has been responsible for substantial advances in microbial ecology, evolution, and diversity over the past 5 to 10 years, and many research laboratories are actively engaged in it now. It provides access to the functional gene composition of microbial communities and thus gives a much broader description than phylogenetic surveys, which are often based only on the diversity of one gene. Performing metagenomics analysis is a tedious work using command prompt as it needs more computational knowledge. So it is better to have a GUI to perform this work in simple steps for sequence based metagenomics data analysis. This UI helps in measuring the concentration of the microbes like bacteria and fungus in water, soil and in clinical research. This User Interface is developed using java, which is platform independent.
