[…] annotation of the assembled genes was performed using ghostkoala and paladin v1.3.1. taxonomic assignments were carried out using the blastn-based taxonomic binning algorithm implemented in taxator-tk v1.3.3., all data generated or analyzed during this study are included in this published article (and its supplementary information files). all dna and rna sequences that were retrieved […]

[…] sites., developments in taxonomic binning of metagenome data sets have transformed our ability to assign functional attributes of mixed microbial communities to specific taxa (). here, we utilized taxator-tk to generate phylum-level taxonomic bins containing metagenome contigs for gene annotation and cazyme profiling of each phylum. phylum-level bins derived from the metagenome data set […]

[…] archaea. hence the card-fish analysis using archaea probes displayed the presence of two different organisms. supplementary figure  shows the taxonomic profiles for metagenomes determined with taxator-tk. these profiles corroborate the card-fish results and reveal that the majority of the available sequence (∼80%) can be assigned to the archaea, while the remaining part cannot be assigned […]

[…] consistent with other completed a. actinomycetemcomitans genomes. to verify strain identity and detect possible horizontal gene transfer events, genomic intervals were taxonomically assigned using taxator-tk (version 1.3.1e) with the nonredundant-microbial_20140513 database (refpack from (). all classified regions (39.8% of the genome) […]

[…] [], using sets of clade-specific single-copy marker genes. genome bins of distinct taxa were identified by (a) counting the aforementioned taxonomic assignments on gene level, and (b) running taxator-tk (v1.2.1; [] to additionally assign a taxon label on contig level. these two approaches were largely in agreement, identifying high-confident genome bins […]
