[…] fragment sequences into a large phylogeny using a divide-and-conquer approach, utilizing hmmer () to identify putative subtrees followed by pplacer for the actual fragment placement. we benchmarked sepp using 16s v4 sequence fragments and showed that it outperforms the present “state-of-the-art” approach of reconstructing de novo phylogenies and that it provides the necessary addition […]

[…] of dealing with sotus (building a de novo tree from the short sequences) can provide incorrect results in human gut metagenomic studies and show that phylogenetic placement of the new sequences with sepp resolves this problem while also yielding other benefits over existing methods., recent algorithmic advances in amplicon-based microbiome studies enable the inference of exact amplicon sequence […]

[…] near full-length sequences. next, hmmsearch was used to find all orfs from the fragmentary contigs that had a hit to the profile hmm (93 total orfs hit). we inserted the orfs into the ml tree using sepp (saté-enabled phylogenetic placement) (v2), a phylogenetic placement method that can accurately place evolutionarily divergent sequences., validation of contigs was carried out using two […]

[…] see supplementary material for the details., the –addfragments option performed well in comparison with existing methods that were specially designed for aligning short sequences. for the sepp dataset, as shown in , it generally outperformed papara and pagan, but in the easiest case (1000m4), the difference was minor. for the pagan dataset (see supplementary table s1), the difference […]
