FunctionSIM: A sequencing simulator for functional metagenomics

To facilitate the development and improvement of metagenomic tools we developed a sequence simulator - FunctionSIM. As standalone software it allows users to simulate metagenomic sequence datasets that can be used as standardized test data for planning metagenomic projects or for benchmarking software in functional metagenomic analysis.
