trampr (TRFLP analysis and matching package for r) is a package for matching multiple terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (TRFLP) profiles between unknown samples and a database of known TRFLP profiles in order to infer the presence of species in environmental samples. It permits simultaneous analysis of multiple samples and facilitates direct workflow from electrophoresis output through to community analyses. trampr also resolves the issues of multiple TRFLP profiles within a species and (conversely) shared TRFLP profiles across species.
