    Introducing mothur: Open Source, Platform-independent, Community-supported Software for Describing and Comparing Microbial Communities.

    Appl Environ Microbiol. 2009 Oct 2;

    mothur aims to be a comprehensive software package that allows users to use a single piece of software to analyze community sequence data. It builds upon previous tools to provide a flexible and powerful software package for analyzing sequencing data. As a case study, we used mothur to trim, screen, and align sequences, calculate distances, assign sequences to OTUs, and describe the alpha- and beta-diversity of eight marine samples previously characterized by pyrosequencing of 16S rRNA gene fragments. This analysis of more than 222,000 sequences was completed in less than 2 hours using a laptop computer.
