MLTreeMap is a tool that employs full maximum likelihood to give insights into phylogenetic and functional properties of metagenomes and the underlying microbial communities. It does so by detecting and phylotyping a series of relevant marker genes on the submitted DNA fragments. Among these genes are protein coding phylogenetic markers, SSU rRNA genes and markers for important functional pathways. MLTreeMap is available as a web-server and as a stand-alone version.
