Description appeared on the mothur website : " This project seeks to develop a single piece of open-source, expandable software to fill the bioinformatics needs of the microbial ecology community. In February 2009 we released the first version of mothur, which had accelerated versions of the popular DOTUR and SONS programs. Since then we have added the functionality of a number of other popular tools. mothur is currently the most cited bioinformatics tool for analyzing 16S rRNA gene sequences. Step inside the wiki and user forum and learn how you can use mothur to process data generated by Sanger, PacBio, IonTorrent, 454, and Illumina (MiSeq/HiSeq)."
mothur is available as a module.
Once the mothur module has been loaded, its tools can be used.
