recipe multitax

Python package to obtain, parse and explore biological taxonomies



MIT / MIT License



MultiTax is a Python package that provides a common and generalized set of functions to download, parse, filter and explore multiple biological taxonomies (GTDB, NCBI, Silva, Greengenes, Open Tree taxonomy) and custom formatted taxonomies.

package multitax

(downloads) docker_multitax



depends python:




You need a conda-compatible package manager (currently either micromamba, mamba, or conda) and the Bioconda channel already activated (see set-up-channels).

While any of above package managers is fine, it is currently recommended to use either micromamba or mamba (see here for installation instructions). We will show all commands using mamba below, but the arguments are the same for the two others.

Given that you already have a conda environment in which you want to have this package, install with:

   mamba install multitax

and update with::

   mamba update multitax

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname multitax

with myenvname being a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).

Alternatively, use the docker container:

   docker pull<tag>

(see `multitax/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
