Struo: a pipeline for building custom databases for common metagenome profilers

Taxonomic and functional information from microbial communities can be efficiently obtained by metagenome profiling, which requires databases of genes and genomes to which sequence reads are mapped. However, the databases that accompany metagenome profilers are not updated at a pace that matches the increase in available microbial genomes, and unifying database content across metagenome profiling […]
