Grinder Web Site

Features

  • shotgun or amplicon (e.g. 16S rRNA) read libraries
  • omics support to generate genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metagenomic, metatranscriptomic or metaproteomic datasets
  • arbitrary read length distribution and number of reads
  • simulation of PCR and sequencing errors (chimeras, point mutations, homopolymers)
  • support for paired-end (mate pair) datasets
  • specific rank-abundance settings or manually given abundance for each genome, gene or protein
  • creation of datasets with a given richness (alpha diversity)
  • related datasets can share a variable number of genomes (beta diversity)
  • modeling of the bias created by varying genome lengths or gene copy number
  • profile mechanism to store preferred options
  • available to biologists or power users through multiple interfaces: GUI, CLI and API
