FAPROTAX usage overview
MCM (Microbial Community Modeler)
A computational framework for modeling microbial communities using dynamic flux balance analysis of genome-based cell models, in the context of a dynamical environment. Classical functional group models are also supported.

peacots (Periodogram Peaks in Correlated Time Series)
An R package for detecting cyclicity in time series using the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck state-space model (rather than simple white noise) as a null hypothesis.
Citation: Louca, S., Doebeli, M. (2015). Detecting cyclicity in ecological time series. Ecology 96:1724-1732. DOI:10.1890/14-0126.1
