[…] more than 8 bp of homopolymer, and a length between 370 and 380 bp (after removal of primers and barcode sequences), since most of the expected amplicons ranged from 370 to 380 bp length (judged by taxman database;; []). chimeric sequences were removed using uchime v4.2 []. taxonomy was assigned to each read by using the rdp_trainset v14 database [], […]

[…] optimal picking, which uses uclust [], version 1.2.22q, to perform the clustering. as a reference database, we used a primer-specific version of the full greengenes 13.5 database []., using taxman [], we created the primer-specific reference database, containing only reference entries that matched our selected primers. during this process we restricted the mismatches of the probes […]
