Mothur v.1.25.0

We are happy to announce the release of mothur v.1.25.0 with a number of new commands, features and bug fixes. First, the most significant new command is pcr.seqs, which will lift out specific regions of your gene of interest based on a number of user supplied parameters including primer sequence and alignment region. This would be most useful for creating your own reference sequence files for alignments and classification. Second, another new feature is the cooccurrence function, which will use a number of metrics and methods of testing those metrics to measure whether populations are co-occurring more frequently than you'd expect by chance. Third, at the suggestion of a user on the forum, we have begun to look at methods of synthesizing data in the create.database function. Finally, to support Greg Caporaso's BIOM format, we have allowed for more easy formatting of data from a shared file to a biom file using the make.biom and make.shared files.


As always, we have added a number of new features and fixed several bugs that were reported to us by you through emails to mothur.bugs@gmail.com and through the user forum. We take your feedback seriously. Thank you for your continued support and suggestions. As always keep the 6 packs coming...
