q2d2: A public QIIME 2 prototype

This month the QIIME development group is starting the transition from prototyping to developing QIIME 2. To mark this transition and to follow up on my recent blog post, Toward QIIME 2, I put together a demo video that illustrates the end point of one of our QIIME 2 prototypes, q2d2, which you can find here.

This is an approximately 18-minute video that illustrates ideas for the QIIME 2 API, and our Jupyter (i.e., IPython Notebook) based “documentation-driven” interface. q2d2 can be easily installed and run on your laptop. As I note in the video, you should use q2d2 for testing purposes only – it’s not sufficiently tested for real data analysis.
