Linking functions to taxa

I have used QIIME2 to resolve my data, and have taxonomic profiling for sample ids. I have also used qiime2 picrust2 plugin to get info on the functional attributes. However, what I am looking for is something like…
“…phyla Actinobacteria has “x” proportion of members containing nitrification genes, “y” proportion of members containing denitrification genes etc…”

Is there any bioinformatic tool to do this? I couldn’t seem to find anything…or is this a pipeline I need to create myself?

Hi Anirban!
I’m doing some similar analyses also looking for proportions of certain functional capabilities in the community. I have been using “Microbiome analyst” ( which is an R package with a web platform.
