DiScRIBinATE | A method for taxonomic classification of metagenomic sequences

Allows taxonomic classification of metagenomic sequences. DiScRIBinATE attempts to address the limitations associated with the software SOrt-ITEMS. To maintain the accuracy of assignments, the software retains the steps followed in the first phase of SOrt-ITEMS i.e. for finding an appropriate taxonomic level where the assignment of the read is to be restricted. To ensure the specificity of assignments, it uses an ‘alternative approach’ based on the ratio of bit-score and distance information obtained from the hits corresponding to a read.
