TaxonKit: a cross-platform and efficient NCBI taxonomy toolkit

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
Wei Shen, Jie Xiong


TaxonKit is a command-line toolkit for rapid manipulation of NCBI taxonomy data. It provides executable binary files for major operating systems including Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, and can be directly used without any dependencies nor local database buiding. TaxonKit demonstrates competitive performance in execution time compared to similar tools. The efficiency, scalability, and usability of TaxonKit enable researchers to rapidly investigate taxonomy data.
