MG-RAST (the Metagenomics RAST) server is an automated analysis platform for metagenomes providing quantitative insights into microbial populations based on sequence data.
# of metagenomes173,899
# base pairs72.14 Tbp
# of sequences585 billion
# of public metagenomes25,918
The server primarily provides upload, quality control, automated annotation and analysis for prokaryotic metagenomic shotgun samples. MG-RAST was launched in 2007 and has over 12,000 registered users and 173,899 data sets. The current server version is 3.5. We suggest users take a look at MG-RAST for the impatient. Also available for download is the MG-RAST manual.
