What NPLinker can do for you

NPLinker aims to address the significant bottleneck that exists in the realization of the potential of genome-led metabolite discovery, namely the slow manual matching of predicted biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs) with metabolites produced during bacterial culture; linking phenotype to genotype.

NPLinker implements a new data-centric approach to alleviate this linking problem by searching for patterns of strain presence and absence between groups of similar spectra (molecular families; MF) and groups of similar BGCs (gene cluster families; GCF). Searches can be performed using a number of available analysis methods employed in isolation or together.
