Abstract / Description of output

SUMMARY: Accurate gene prediction is essential for successful metagenome analysis. We present KOunt, a Snakemake pipeline, that precisely quantifies KEGG orthologue abundance.

AVAILABILITY AND IMPLEMENTATION: KOunt is available on GitHub: https://github.com/WatsonLab/KOunt. The KOunt reference database is available on figshare: https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.21269715. Test data are available at https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.22250152 and version 1.2.0 of KOunt at https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.23607834.
