Unipept is an open source web application designed for metaproteomics data analysis with a focus on interactive data visualisations. Unipept is powered by an index containing all UniProt entries, a tweaked version of the NCBI taxonomy and a custom lowest common ancestor algorithm. This combination enables a blazingly fast biodiversity analysis of large and complex metaproteome samples. Next to these core functions, Unipept also has a tool for selecting unique peptides for targeted proteomics and for comparing genomes based on peptide similarity.
Unipept is developed at Ghent University. All published articles can be found on this page, a tutorial on Unipept has been published in 2018. News and updates on Unipept can be found on Twitter: @unipept.
