The software called PanFP (Pangenome-based functional profile) is a tool to predict functional
composition of microbial communities based on communities survey data which builds a pangenome for
each OTU and assigns the pangenome's functional profile to the OTU. For microbial communities for
which metagenomes are not available, the PanFP would provide new ways to study complex ecosystems
comparative functional metatgnomes and metadata analysis statistically highlighting the most
overpresented biological annotation and which functions are critical between environmental samples.
