BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3849074
PMID: 24053649
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-14-641

[…] enomes, then used PCA (principal component analysis) and hierarchical clustering to show “definitive groupings of metagenomes drawn from similar environment”. Ghosh et al [] developed a method called HabiSign which uses tetra-nucleotide patterns of metagenomic sequences to cluster the samples at biome, phenotypic and species levels. Jiang et al [] studied several major dissimilarity measures with […]

[…] nomic level, and subsequently enumerating the number of assignments to various taxa at that level.Sequences specific to either the malnourished or the healthy child data set were identified using the HabiSign algorithm (TSG et al., manuscript communicated). This algorithm identifies sequences specific to a data set by first mapping all sequences to pre-computed points in feature vector space. Subs […]
