16S ribosomal RNA sequencing data analysis software tools
16S ribosomal RNA (16S rRNA) is a component of the 30S subunit of archaea and bacterial ribosomes. It is a highly conserved region among prokaryotes and as such is used for phylogenic studies. In genomics, sequencing of 16S ribosomal RNA is used to identify or classify bacteria species. 16S rRNA sequencing data analysis tools are used for experimental design, prediction-based or homogeny-based taxonomic classification, and data preprocessing.
