[…] known sequence-types from 15 species of clinical relevance. for instance, we identified several acinetobacter strains that were close to the nosocomial opportunistic pathogen a. nosocomialis. with strainphlan, a generalized version of the metamlst approach, we inferred the phylogenetic structure of pseudomonas stutzeri strains and suggested that the strain-level heterogeneity in environmental […]

[…] () exploits a few species-specific hypervariable loci previously defined mostly for (opportunistic) pathogens and can rely on several thousands of already characterized strain profiles. with strainphlan (), we brought to metagenomics the single-nucleotide variant (snv) analysis that is routinely applied to the core genome of sequenced microbial isolates. this tool uses millions […]

[…] composition was calculated with humann2 [] using the uniref90 database with default settings. differentially abundant species were identified using maaslin. strain-level analysis was performed using strainphlan [] with the default parameters and panphlan [] with (--min_coverage 1 --left_max 1.70 --right_min 0.30). while strain-level profiling using strainphlan was carried out for 72 species […]

[…] set of strain-level profiling methods we developed.– the first recently developed approach is an assembly free strain-level phylogenetic method based on species-specific metaphlan 2 markers, called strainphlan, which identifies strains looking at taxon-specific single-nucleotide polymorphisms (snps) (see methods) and allowed us to build two whole-genome phylogenetic trees of the two most common […]

[…] metagenomic samples at a finer strain-level resolution. this was achieved by applying a recent strain-specific pangenome-based method called panphlan (), as well as a genetics-based method called strainphlan (d. t. truong, a. tett, e. pasolli, c. huttenhower, and n. segata, submitted for publication) (see materials and methods), which identifies single-nucleotide variants (snvs) […]
