Hi everyone!

I have tried to find the R package Tax4Fun2 from the paper (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33902725/) . This R package lets analizes the microbiome in an easy way to predict functional profiles from metagenomic 16S rRNA data.

However, I have not found the package in R CRAN packages, neither in the github refered in the original paper (https://github.com/bwemheu/Tax4Fun2) or the Tax4Fun page (http://tax4fun.gobics.de/).

I am looking for Tax4Fun2 because gives higher accuracies than PICRUSt and Tax4Fun.

Any help will be grateful!

Best,

E

Tax4Fun2 because gives higher accuracies than PICRUSt

They tested Tax4Fun2 (2020) against PICRUSTt version 1, which is very old (2013). In this paper on the other hand, Tax4Fun2 actually performs worst than PICRUSt2

please I am trying to install and use Tax4fun2. but do you have the SILVA_132_SSURef_NR90.fasta file? I attempted to locate it in the Silva Database, but I couldn't find it.

https://www.arb-silva.de/no_cache/download/archive/release_132/ARB_files/

Tax4Fun2 requires the SILVA_132_SSURef_NR90.fasta file specifically... Thank you so much

You just need to look through other directories. This file is the closest to what you want:

https://www.arb-silva.de/fileadmin/silva_databases/release_132/Exports/SILVA_132_SSURef_Nr99_tax_silva.fasta.gz

After unpacking, you can either rename the file to SILVA_132_SSURef_NR90.fasta or change the code to use the file you have.

I searched GitHub for Tax4Fun2 and found this:

https://github.com/ZihaoShu/Tax4Fun2

This is a repository for a project that uses tax4fun2, not the repository that documents T4F and provides it for download/installation. All repositories for installing T4F2 and T4F seem to have been removed from the internet in the last few months.

https://github.com/ZihaoShu/Tax4Fun2 has tar file Tax4Fun2_1.1.5.tar.gz, download and install from source.

install.packages("Tax4Fun2_1.1.5.tar.gz", repos = NULL, type = "source")
