[…] size selection, we next asked if certain taxa were differentially represented across the samples to see if this would point to a possible reason for library sequence bias. we used taxy [] as well as taxy-pro [] as part of the comet web server [] to do a fast preliminary comparison of taxa abundance across the three different samples. taxy calculates k-mer frequencies for the dataset […]

[…] different pfam families from our database. , as an exception, we did not apply this procedure to virus-enriched metagenomes, i.e., datasets with a high fraction of viral dna (>20% as measured by taxy-pro). the total number of datasets according to habitat categories can be found in . a csv-formatted list containing the metagenome identifiers and habitat labels as used in our evaluation […]
