MGnify is a freely available hub for the analysis and exploration of metagenomic, metatranscriptomic, amplicon and assembly data. The resource provides rich functional and taxonomic analyses of user-submitted sequences, as well as analysis of publicly available metagenomic datasets drawn from the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA). 

This webinar will provide an overview of the MGnify API and its use, including how to execute API calls from the browser; where to find documentation; how to use filtering and pagination; available output formats; and scripting examples in Python and R. The webinar will assume a degree of familiarity with the microbiome-derived data in MGnify.

This webinar took place on 28 November 2018. The recording and slides can be found in Train online.


This webinar is aimed at individuals who wish to learn more about the MGNify API (formerly EBI Metagenomics). Some familiarity with MGNify and programmatic access methods is recommended.
